Business Solidarity (Russian: Бизнес Солидарность) is a Russian NGO, which has received international media coverage for its campaigns against the persecution of businesspeople in Russia, where many such cases have been reported (see Human rights in Russia).[1] It was founded by the businesswoman Yana Yakovleva, who decided to take action after spending time in prison in pre-trial detention on trumped up charges. Yakovleva and Business Solidarity have played an active role in legislative changes in Russia.[2] The organisation's website maintains a catalogue of cases of persecution.[3]
