Alexander Cherkasov

Alexander Cherkasov, a leading expert on Russia’s turbulent north Caucasus region, chairs the ‘Memorial’ Human Rights Centre. Well known for its courageous thorough reporting from Russia’s hot spots, ‘Memorial’ has been documenting human rights abuses in Chechnya and providing assistance to victims since the start of the armed conflict in Chechnya in 1994 and extended its work to the neighbouring republics as human rights abuses spilled out to the broader north Caucasus region.
