The Russian Federation and Religious Freedom in the Spotlight- Side Session at the United Nations Geneva
A panel of human rights and freedom of religion experts, as well as the leader of Hinduism in Russia have been invited by a French NGO – CAP LC (coordiap.com) at the United Nations Office in Geneva during the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) session on Russia to address the alarming and shocking situation of religious minorities in the Russian Federation. Especially during the last 3 years not only minorities, but also large mainstream religions have been banned from public activities, such as the Hinduism Community – despite more than 20 years of perfect integration. But also Jehovah Witnesses, the Church of Jesus-Christ of Later Day Saints and many others.
Listen to the exposition of the hidden factor behind the “bad religion concept” and the dehumanizing activities of so called “anti-sect offices”, that are generously state funded. This is not only the case in Russia but also in most of Europe.

- Mr. Thierry Valle – President CAP LC
- Mr. Peter Zoehrer – Director General of FOREF – Forum for Religious Freedom in Europe
