ABSTRACT
The article looks at the Russian Army's "special operations." Since 1998, the European Court of Human Rights has received more than 28,000 human-rights complaints from Russia, most concerning abuse of power by police and judicial corruption, which is more than any other country in the Council of Europe. According to Andrey Nikolayev, a lawyer with the Judicial Initiative, Russian police go to elaborate lengths to keep people from filing protests with the European Court.
