Elena Milashina

Dear Mr. President,

With grave concern I learned about the difficult situation of Elena Milashina.

Please urge the authorities to condemn the threats against Elena Milashina in public. Also see to it that such attacks will not be repeated and the journalist's safety is guaranteed.

Journalists should be free to investigate and write about the Covid-19 epidemic. This includes the right to investigate the Chechen or other Russian republics' reaction to the pandemic.

Please protect the right to freedom of expression and information.

Yours sincerely,
