Human rights violations

Russian forces have been accused of persistent human rights violations.

Their tactic of indiscriminately rounding up Chechen men of fighting age, then interrogating them in "filtration camps" in order to identify rebel fighters has been widely condemned.

Many Chechen men have "disappeared" in this way. The Russian human rights group Memorial has said 194 Chechens disappeared in the first half of 2004.
