The UK Government is concerned about the arrest and detention of Andrei Pivovarov. The British Ambassador to Russia raised Mr Pivovarov's case with authorities in St Petersburg on 3 June. We continue to raise our concern about the deteriorating human rights situation with the Russian Government and make clear that Russia must fulfil its international commitments to ensure respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms.
