In the second half of 2019 the public reception of KHPG provided 1870 consultations. Anybody can leave an application on our site, address us on Facebook, send a letter, call us or visit our office in Kharkiv in person and receive a consultation
Each year the lawyers of KHPG lead 230-240 cases in Ukrainian courts.
We win almost all of them
As of 01.01.2020 our lawyers filed 576 applications to the Strasbourg court, 142 cases were won and none was lost, the rest are pending. Approximately 80 cases are processed annually
We cover human rights violations, write news and analytics. Our site has Ukrainian and English versions. Last year it was visited by over a million users
KHPG monitors regularly visit penitentiary institutions, write about the violations found and provide legal assistance to the prisoners
Electronic library on human rights (1000+ books), online museum of dissident movement, the site of “Against Tortures” coalition, public education, — Kharkiv Human Rights Protection Group supports these and other projects
Police, SSU, NABU and other bodies have a tendency to abuse their authority if they are not controlled. We do it in informational space, covering the violations, as well as in courts, suing for illegal actions
Today KHPG lacks financial resources to support the activities of the organization in full and there is a need to either lay off the employees or deny the support for some directions of activities. At the same time the new challenges — the epidemic of COVID-19, economical crisis and the violations of human rights resulting from it, — demand the increase in resources and widening the activities of the organization. Therefore we decided to resort to crowdfunding, to increase the funding thus.
The direction of informing is the most endangered — the support of Internet resources and pages of KHPG in social networks. Therefore we intend to direct the received funds in that area.
The Director of KHPG, Yevhen Zakharov
