Domestic Violence in Russia

According to the Ministry of Domestic Affairs every year around 14 thousand Russian women die from domestic violence. (Compare this number with 17 thousand people that USSR lost during 10 years of war conflict with Afghanistan). The home that should be their fortress becomes a place where nightmare is reality. Today over 160 NGOs in Russia are trying to solve the problem of domestic violence and provide support to its victims. (source: Agency of Social Information)
