10 Years without Anna Politkovskaya

Anna Politkovskaya’s voice would certainly have been heard, as was Boris Nemtsov’s, over Russia’s aggression against Ukraine. It is sorely needed now also in occupied Crimea, with Russia increasingly using the same methods that it has applied for so long in Chechnya and Ingushetia | detail

Destructions in Donbas. Scale, attempts at reconstruction and perspectives for redress for victims

In March 2014, Eastern regions of Ukraine became an arena of the Russian secret services’ "Russian Spring" plan, aiming to pull a large part of Ukrainian territories out of Ukrainian jurisdiction. These actions were supported by a wide information campaign in the Russian Federation. As a result of resistance from the Ukrainian state and its society, the plan was disrupted, but on the territory of Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics (DNR and LNR) were created, and the confrontation escalated into an armed conflict. | detail
