Mapping Hate Crimes in Moscow
The Civic Assistance Committee and the SOVA Center for Information and Analysis have released an interactive map to record instances of hate crime in Moscow. The map shows the locations of attacks against ethnic, religious, or other vulnerable groups in the city.
The red markers on the Hate Crimes map indicate hate crimes which resulted in the death of the victim and the green markers indicate crimes which resulted in non-fatal injuries. The map includes the option to filter the results shown on the map by time and by the age & gender of the victim.
If you select a hate crime victim's marker on the map you can read more details about the nature of the attack, the victim and the result (or, more commonly, the lack of a result) in any resulting criminal case.
