During our work we use three classic methods:
- Attraction of civil society attention i.e. Clean Hands which analyzes the evidences of corruption in an allegation. If facts of corruption are proved materials send to the next stages;
- Attraction of mass media attention to the evidences of corruption. It is may be a press-conference, a special report etc (see mass media mentions);
- Urging the state to respond to our allegation with evidences of corruption;
The results of one year work of Russian Anti-Corruption Civil Society Center “Clean Hands» are presented in the annual report “Corruption in Russia”, that was published on 01 July 2009 at Kiev, Ukraine.

29 JULY 2009 REGULAR ATTEMPT OF ELIMINATION OF BAR INDEPENDENCE IN RUSSIA

On 28 July 2009 Ministry of Justice of Russian Federation suggested a new initiative concerning position of Russian lawyer. Alexander Konovalov a Minister of Justice plans to introduce a system of regular mandatory retesting of all Russian lawyers - the professional re-examinations are invited at least once every 5 years.
- The initiative of Ministry of Justice is the regular attempt to eliminate the independence of Russian Lawyers, - Evgeny Arkhipov a Chairman Association of Russian Lawyers for Human Rights said. - In practice, we face with different methods of pressure against many Russian lawyers especially at regional and local level. For example, if lawyer advocated victims of seeking of officials or law enforcement, he suffers a falsification of criminal case against him, or he is deprived of Lawyer Status or he becomes a victim of violence and even killing. A striking example is the murder of lawyer Stanislav Markelov in down town of Moscow. Alexander Konovalov’s proposal is unconstitutional and violates international rules and standards which guarantee the independence of all lawyers in the World. The attempt to adopt   «professional examination» every 5 years for Russian lawyers follows to the result that the most independent, principled lawyers will not be able to pass the specified test and will lose their status.
Everybody remembers the pressure against the lawyer Karinna Moskalenko, when the Ministry of Justice initiated a procedure of deprivation of her lawyer status.
Thus, according to this proposal, a lawyer who reached 70 years of age must pass professional examination every 5 years.
Also this initiative affects the most reputable lawyers - Reznik, Kucherena, Padva etc.,

27 MAY 2009 VORONEZH EXPOSED ROERICHS CENTER FOR SALE

The issue of the eviction of the Russian CSO “Roerichs Center” is still opened despite strong protests of the members of Public Chamber of Voronezh region and the residents of Voronezh city. The basement office of Roerichs Center placed in Voronezh on Kukolkina Street, 1 is still under the arrest of the list of Real Estates offered for sale for debts of the city. Local authorities’ actions contradict Russian Constitution and the Law about CSO.
-  The coordinated action of local authorities against Roerichs Center shows a low level of understanding of role of civil society, as well as the lack of understanding of the role of Roerich's teachings in the world philosophy and culture- a president of Association of Russian Lawyers for Human Rights Evgeny Arkhipov is explaining the situation. -  It is unacceptable behavior of local authorities of the city with a million residents of different cultural and national communities. Unfortunately, Voronezh is well known as city with nationalist moods and intolerance to other cultures, religions. The pressure of local authorities against Roerichs Center shows a low level of tolerance which aggravating the difficult situation in the City. Due to the fact that the appeal of Association of Russian Lawyers for Human Rights had been ignored by local authorities we have decided to declare the action to support the Roerichs Center in Voronezh.
Association of Russian Lawyers for Human Rights addresses   to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev  and Chairman of the party «United Russia» Vladimir Putin for intervening in the illegal actions of local authorities to stop persecution against Roerichs Center.

06 MAY 2009 KARABASH: Operation of Rescue

Association of Russian Lawyers for Human Rights reminds that in March 2009 we received a complaint from residents of  Karabash city of Chelyabinsk region  in Russia about violations of  environmental law by the local companies.
Neighborhood of the city resembles frames of the movie «Terminator» or images from the planet Mars where the red river and black streams are flowing, where there are no vegetations, where mountains of industrial waste rise. We have got information from local residents that their average life - 38-40 years.
30 April 2009 due the catastrophic environmental situation in the city Karabash the Association had been prepared and sent the appropriate addresses to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and President of Public Chamber of Russia Evgeny Velikhov.
In the addresses Evgeny Arkhipov a Chairman of Association of Russian Lawyers for Human Rights suggested to join forces for saving people life and the environment around Karabash.
In the addresses to Mr. Medvedev and Mr. Velikhov, we ask  as soon as possible to resolve issues of relocation of  Karabash  inhabitants at nearby towns that are outside of the negative effects of Karabash harmful industries, we suggest Russian Government to organize environmental examination of independent experts  under civil society and media control, in case of impossibility of installation pollution control equipment we ask the Government to close the hazardous industries in Karabash - Evgeny Arkhipov said.

03 March 2009 Belgorod Reichskanzler put the leader of NGO at the psychiatric clinic!

In Russia the leader of NGO Mikhail Alyanyh was sent by authorities and officials of law enforcement of Belgorod region in psychiatric clinic after his opposing to the demolition of New Oskol city monument of Russian soldiers perished in the Second World War.
As a result of the barbarism the monument place disappeared - instead Soldiers Steles the local market built.
Belgorod former businessman Mikhail Alyanyh expressed his position to defend the monument of Russian soldiers perished in the Second World War in New Oskol and organized anti-corruption foundation «Antiment» ( against corruption police translated) to help citizens affected by corruption at local bodies.  On Michael initiative the local chief of police and the chief of traffic police were fired.
Also Alyanyh accused the chairman of the district court in corruption.
Foundation activity was covered constantly in local media.  Among other things, Alyanyh commented negatively the demolition of the solders’ monument and the building of market.
After that incident Alyanyh had been caught by a local police and he was placed at the psychiatric clinic. After one and half of year at the psychiatric clinic he learned that he had been sent for psychiatric treatment by the trial in absentia (without Alyanyh participation at the court). In doing so, the local administration was appointed as the guardian of «the patient».
