For 2005-2018 years in the North Caucasus based on “the desecrated honor” were killed 48 people, 44 women and four men. Research with such data on its website publishes the project “Legal initiative”.
Murderers of women has always been close relatives — often a brother or father, suspecting them in “indecent” and “inappropriate” behavior. The reason for the crime often been rumors and someone’s speculation. None of the instigators, according to the authors of the study had been prosecuted were not. By the accused, which took place under articles “Murder” or “Murder committed in the heat of passion,” the court in some cases was determined from the minimum stipulated by the code of punishments.
At the disposal of researchers have only those sentences which the courts have placed in free access. However, most often, the authors of the document, such acts either posted late, or not at all published.
Earlier it was reported that one in ten murdered woman in the world was the Russian woman. This follows from the report of the crisis center “Anna.” The authors of the report noted that in 2018 Russia scored zero points in the field of legislation for the protection of women, including from violence, and was on the same level with Liberia, Gabon, Iran and the UAE.
