News: Domestic violence is not recognised as a crime in Russia


“Thousands of women in Russia die each year as a result of domestic violence, according to official estimates. But despite many years of discussions, domestic abuse is still not recognised as a crime and this hampers help for the victims”

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-21474931

“14,000 die from injuries inflicted by husbands or partners each year”

“After more than a decade of discussion, the draft law on domestic violence has still not been introduced in parliament”

How do we progress when violence is not even recognized as a crime. Why do we consider women as sub human? Laws need to change. More than that, people, society, attitudes need to change.
