Ukraine

The Helsinki Committee has been engaged in Ukraine since the beginning of the 1990s. We have observed many elections and followed developments in the human rights situation throughout time from President Kuchma, Orange Revolution to Euromaidan and the recent dramatic development of Russian occupation of Crimea and their sneaky warfare in eastern Ukraine. We have previously had several projects in Ukraine, with an emphasis on human rights education in cooperation with local partners. We are also engaged in LGBTI issues in Ukraine.
