Criminal conviction rates in Russia currently higher than under Stalin

15 August 2017

Our Russian readers may be interested to know that it has recently been reported in the mainstream media that conviction rates in criminal trials in Russia are currently higher (about 99.7%) than they were under Stalin’s gavelregime. The statistic sounds unlikely but it is true, and there is plenty of authority about it, including from the Russian Supreme Court itself. Under Stalin conviction rates were apparently only around 90%.

An instructive comparison is with the UK, where the figure is around 83%.

There is, however, an explanation of the extraordinarily high rate of convictions in Russia: apparently only “watertight” cases reach the courts.

Food for thought for those on the wrong side of the criminal justice system in Russia, which some people claim is not completely perfect.
