Russia has just held its 2021 legislative elections, following a massive crackdown on dissent. Questions loom about what efforts Russian authorities, including the newly elected Duma, will make to further silence independent voices.

Alexei Navalny remains in prison, the movements associated with him are banned, and new repressive legislation targeting civil society is taking effect. These developments come after a decade of legislation curbing human rights and silencing the media. What will the human rights landscape in Russia look like moving forward and how should the Human Rights Council respond?
