…as Refugees In Ingushetia Are Pressured

Publication: North Caucasus Weekly Volume: 5 Issue: 2

Indeed, as had been predicted by several human rights activists, pressures are now intensifying on Chechen refugees to leave the shelters that have housed them in Ingushetia. According to a January 8 report on the website Prava cheloveka v Rossii (“Human Rights in Russia”), refugees living in three sites in the Ingush village of Troitskaya have learned that the Ingush republic’s migration service has informed the managers of those sites that the service will no longer provide rental payments to enable the refugees to stay there. The refugees are thus now at risk of becoming homeless.
