Committee on the Protection of Rights of UWC and its Network

Chair – Eugene Czolij

About the committee

The Committee on the Protection of Rights of the UWC and its Network was established in October 2019 following the illegal decisions of the Prosecutor General’s Office and the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation on the recognition of the UWC’s activities as “undesirable in the territory of the Russian Federation”, which is aimed at isolating the UWC from the Ukrainian diaspora in the Russian Federation. The purpose of the Committee is to challenge these decisions in the courts of the Russian Federation and the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, as well as to promote the condemnation of these decisions at the international level.
