Abstract
This article discusses human rights violations in Chechnya. When the armed conflict in Chechnya - officially called a 'counter-terrorist operation' - commenced in 1999, extrajudicial executions, indiscriminate bombardment, torture and disappearances were committed by Russian forces on a large scale. The first judgments of the ECtHR, handed down in February 2005 addressing those atrocities, have been followed, at the time of writing, by more than 70 further judgments. In all of the cases, Russia was found in violation of ECHR rights and required to pay compensation to the applicants.
