We provide and coordinate legal assistance in cases related to the restrictions of freedom of peaceful assembly or freedom of speech. Our attorneys visit the detained in the police departments, support the defendants in Russian administrative and criminal courts, and file complaints to the European Court of Human Rights (in collaboration with the Human Rights Center Memorial).
We are continuing and will continue our work, and we rely on your support to do so. But in the current situation we have had to suspend donations through our Rouble account in Sberbank. Today we cannot be sure that we will be able to receive these donations, nor that we will have the opportunity to use them as intended.
There are two ways to support us that continue to be reliable:
- GlobalGiving: using a bank card, PayPal (from abroad)
- Cryptocurrency: this is the only donation method that will remain unaffected by the rouble’s exchange rate, or the status of the Russian banking system
If these options don’t work for you, but you would like to still support us in the future, please leave us your email, and we will let you know when we figure out other donation methods.
You can also always support other projects: human rights defenders, independent news media (or what remains of them!), or charities and their beneficiaries, who are also experiencing colossal difficulties.
Thank you once more - for being there with us and for helping others! In dark and turbulent times, sticking together is ever more important.
Keep in touch
Always with you, OVD-info
