Racial Terrorism in Russia Claims Another Victim

Eduard Chuvashov

One of Russia’s leading anti racist Judges Eduard Chuvashov (pictured) has been slain in his Moscow apartment.

Mr. Chuvashov who was brutally shot in the head and chest on Monday 12th April came to prominence after he presided over the trial of 12 members of a fascist organisation known as “the White Wolves” who were charged with committing a series of racist murders of migrant workers.

Most of the killings were recorded on mobile phones and placed on the Internet. Having found them guilty he then went on to sentence them to up to 23 years in jail.

He the endured death threats that were posted on a variety of hardened racist web sites. Last week he jailed three other racists for similar murders.

There has been a spate of attacks on those judges involved in trying white Russian extremists. In 2004 a judge hearing a similar case was shot dead whilst another prominent anti racist judge survived a car bomb attack.

A local anti racist organisation Sova claims that at as many as 60 people were victims of racist murders last year alone. In May 2006 Amnesty International reported that racism in Russia was ‘”out of control”.

In February 2007 president Vladimir Putin requested the Federal security Services to take the lead in combating racism. In 2007 a video of two Russian neo Nazis beheading two Muslims was posted on the Internet.

What is clear is that prominent Russian anti racist and anti fascists are facing an all out terrorist campaign of unprecedented proportions.
