Report of the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights and fundamental freedoms of indigenous people, James Anaya. Situation of indigenous peoples in the Russian Federation. 2010 /
This report follows a visit to the Russian Federation by the Special Rapporteur on
the situation of human rights and fundamental freedoms of indigenous people, and
examines the situation of indigenous people in the Russian Federation in light of relevant international human rights standards. The report is focused on those groups whose members number less than 50,000 and are recognized by the Russian Federation as “small-numbered indigenous peoples” entitled to special protections, although the report notes that other groups with similar, historically-rooted characteristics of economic and social disadvantage, and whose cultures and ways of life are also threatened, are likewise in need of attention in accordance with international standards.
