The goal of the action is to support the Ukrainian filmmaker sentenced to 20 years imprisonment in the Russian Federation. Oleg Sentsov has been on hunger strike since 14 May in protest against the illegal imprisonment.
With reference to upcoming Human Rights Council elections in October, Human Rights House Foundation delivered a statement at HRC54 on 29 September 2023, repeating condemnation of Russia’s application for Council membership, and underlining that no State which retaliates against civil society for engaging with the UN should be a Council member.
Human Rights House Foundation seeks external evaluation of its EU-funded STRONG Civil Society project that ends in January 2024. Any individual or firm interested in undertaking this work should submit a proposal by 17:00 CET on 18 October 2023.
On 25 September 2023, during the interactive dialogue with the Commission of Inquiry at HRC54, Human Rights House Foundation highlighted the work of Ukrainian partners in documenting the dire circumstances facing civilians in the occupied territories of Ukriane.
