"Statistics on domestic violence are notoriously inexact. In 2016, the last full year before the decriminalization law, the government recorded more than 65,500 violent domestic crimes, almost 50,000 of them against women. Women’s rights advocates believe that domestic violence affects about 30 percent of households in Russia — on par with many other countries, they said, except that Russia does not address the problem" (para 25, 26).

“'For us, the problem of unequal rights does not exist,' Anna Kislichenko, a conservative blogger, said in an interview. 'Women here in their minds believe that they are equal.' Domestic abuse victims and activists dismiss such talk, and say that decriminalization has made the police and social service agencies even more reluctant to interfere' ( para 30). "Courts reflect the prevailing attitude. In Ms. Katorova’s trial, corroborating testimony unexpectedly came from her mother-in-law, who was seeking financial compensation for her son’s death. Of course her son beat his wife, she testified, but Ms. Katorova deserved it because she was excessively jealous of his contacts with other woman after he had...more

“A man beating his wife is less offensive than when a man is humiliated,” Yelena Mizulina, the lawmaker who led the effort to decriminalize domestic abuse, told reporters in 2016. She added that it was 'mandatory' for a woman to respect her husband as the 'authority' in the marriage" (para 7).

"“It is very difficult to explain in Russia that domestic violence is not a family conflict, it is violence,” said Marina Pisklakova-Parker, the founder of the National Center for the Prevention of Violence, also known by its Russian acronym, ANNA. “Our main problem is the lack of a system of response.” Some liberal church figures have helped open shelters, but the numbers are limited. There are no legal instruments like restraining orders for women to seek protection from law enforcement agencies, and little immediate chance of creating them. Opponents say that such legalities would undermine the husband’s role and hence “traditional families.” Any such law, they argue, is an attempt...more

"Whereas abusers had previously faced up to two years in jail, under the new statute they risked only 15 days, or a maximum fine of about $440, or 60 to 120 hours of community service. That was for any act against a spouse or child that causes bruising or bleeding but not a broken bone, as long as it did not happen more than once a year" (para 8).

"In Ms. Gurcheva’s appeal, her lawyer, Aleksandr Fomin, overcame the usual problem of a lack of witnesses by deposing the eldest of the two daughters, 4-year-old Daria" (para 18). "The girl spoke in simple sentences, said Mr. Fomin, paraphrasing her. 'Mommy and Daddy fought. They said bad words. They fought often. This time, Daddy took Mommy by the throat and choked her. Mommy hit him with a knife.'" (para 19). "Courts reflect the prevailing attitude.

"'Here, the woman is always the accused; for some reason the sympathy always lies with the aggressor,' said Yelena Solovyova, the defense lawyer for Ms. Katorova in Nakhodka, near Vladivostok in the country’s far east. 'This was such an ideological victory for me, because for the first time the court heard that you cannot blame the victim, you cannot transfer all the blame to the woman.'" (para 4)."For instance, at her trial, Ms. Gurcheva said that she had called the police on numerous occasions but that they never responded. Ms. Katorova said that she had filed police reports twice, but that local officers persuaded her to withdraw the complaints rather...more
