Court bans Eurasian Youth Union


On 6 November the Kharkiv District Administrative Court, on the basis of material from the SBU [Security Service] allowed the application of the Kharkiv Regional Prosecutor to forcibly dissolve the Kharkiv regional civic organization “Eurasian Youth Union”.

The SBU Press Centre’s report points out that the activities of a number of organizations with extremist or separatist leanings have been banned. In December 2006 a court banned activities on Ukrainian territory of the Sevastopol youth organization “Proryv” [“Breakthrough”], while in November 2007 the Donetsk Court of Appeal uphold the ruling by the Donetsk District Administrative Court to forcibly disband the organization “Donetsk Republic”.
