Hate crimes

The project aims to analyze open source data on hate crimes in order to get an idea of ​​the spectrum of such acts in modern conditions. In Russian legislation, not all types of hate crimes are explicitly mentioned in the texts of laws. However, the composition of any hate crime is clearly punished by the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation: insult, beating or murder are prosecuted. Within the framework of the project, both the grounds for such crimes mentioned by the law and the missed ones will be taken into account. This can contribute to the improvement of the law in this area.

The goal of the project is to establish an approximate scale and range of hate crimes in Russia.
