Legal aid initiative for EuroMaidan activists
A legal aid contact post has been opened in Ukrainsky Dim [Ukraine House] on European Square in Kyiv. Its aim is to provide assistance to EuroMaidan activists, in particular those whose rights have been violated by the authorities, including the police.
The initiative has been started by EuroMaidan SOS together with the No Borders Project and the Ukrainian Helsinki Human Rights Union. The contact post will be run on a volunteer basis and provide free and confidential legal advice. It will not provide direct legal aid as such but will direct applications to organizations who can help. They will provide consultations if these can be provided on the spot, and also information in the form of leaflets and booklets on defending ones rights.
