About this grant

In the face of the ongoing war in Ukraine, the Ukrainian Helsinki Human Rights Union will use additional funds for several purposes. These include: securing a level of protection to its employees, including life-saving relocation needs; expanding its network of public reception offices network to additional regions of Ukraine in order to increase citizens’ access to legal assistance; monitoring and documenting brutal human rights abuses and war crimes committed by Russia’s occupation forces in order to hold criminals accountable domestically and internationally; strengthening capacity of legal practitioners on documentation; and knowledge of international humanitarian law and applicable human rights law.
