The homicide rate in Russia reached five homicides per 100 thousand population in 2019. The indicator declined steadily since 2002 when it was measured at 30.7 murders per 100 thousand inhabitants. Over the years observed, the highest rate was recorded at 32.6 homicides per 100 thousand persons in 1994.

Homicide in Russia

The significant decrease in intentional homicides characterizes the general reduction in criminality in Russia since the 1990s. However, murder remains one of the major causes of death in the country, as approximately five mortalities per 100 thousand population were attributed to homicide in 2019. Nine percent of Russian businessmen in 2019 stated in a survey that entrepreneurs faced a greater risk of homicide in modern times than in the 1990s.

Victims of homicide

The number of male victims of homicide per 100 thousand inhabitants in Russia in 2017 was approximately three times higher than the murder rate of females. The UN study showed that while most people who were killed around the globe were men, women were most likely to be murdered by their partners, ex-partners, or family members.
