The Human Rights Council (HRC) under the President of the Russian Federation will hold a three-day meeting in the region.
Representatives of the HRC will hold a meeting in Karelia from 8 to 10 February, upon which public figures will visit the colonies and detention facilities of the Republic. It is reported by the press service of the Council.

Recall that in the autumn of 2016 the media published a letter written by Ildar Dadin (Russia's first convicted under violations of the rules of the rallies), in which he filed for torture and abuse in prison in Karelia, where he was serving his sentence. Independent doctors, who examined the convict, did not find signs of his injuries, the investigators also said they had not found any evidence of the use of physical violence to Dadin.
Later it became known that after the check Dadin was transferred to a penal colony in the Altai region.
A native of Grozny Lors Khamiev, who has served several years for preparing an attempt on Head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov, has been arrested by court along with another defendant. They have already been charged with the murder of Azerbaijani Garib Orudzhev during the night of February 15.
The high-profile shootout in Oko Tower in November 2017 – at least, 40 gunshots were fired there – has led to unexpected consequences a year later. Seven high-ranked investigators of the Main Investigations Directorate in the City of Moscow of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation (ICR) have submitted a collective resignation letter, and the inquest into the incident in Moscow City International Business Center was resumed. In fact, this chain of events resembles another firefight that had occurred in 2015 near Elements Restaurant on Rochdelskaya street, Moscow and also resulted in a number of high-profile criminal cases against senior ICR officials and incarceration of ‘thief № 1’ Shakro Molodoy.
