Submit a donation for missions to the EU and Russian Federation in protection of the Ukrainian activists

The Foundation organises international observation missions, thus documenting, among others, human rights and election rights violations. The Foundation focuses on monitoring the situation in its political and social aspect, also during presidential, parliamentary and local elections in the post-Soviet area.

We are currently advocating for the release of other Ukrainian prisoners, still illegally detained on the territory of the Russian Federation, i.a. the Ukrainian movie director, Oleg Sentsov.

Our observers have monitored, for example, the elections in Ukraine of 2010. From January to April 2014, our volunteers were also present at Maydan and in other regions of Ukraine, where they documented cases of human rights violations during the EuroMaydan-related events and throughout the course of the Russian intervention in the Crimea. The ODF is also sending its correspondents and observers to the east of Ukraine, where the Anti-terrorist Operation (ATO) is ongoing. The Foundation also initiated an international monitoring mission for the Ukrainian 2014 presidential elections, which also included observers from the European Union countries. 

The Foundation has partnered with the Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to organise a number of international observation missions in support of the Ukrainian Lieutenant Nadiya Savchenko. She was detained by the pro-Russian separatists on the territory of Ukraine and unlawfully transferred to Russia, where she faced fabricated criminal charges. We are currently advocating for the release of other Ukrainian prisoners, still illegally detained on the territory of the Russian Federation, i.a. the Ukrainian movie director, Oleg Sentsov, as well as other Crimean activists unlawfully kidnapped from the occupied territory of Crimea.


Oleg Sentsov

"Crimean terrorist"

Sentsov and other persons, accused in the case of the ‘Crimean terrorists’, are facing serious charges of terrorism in the form of the arson attack on the ‘Russian Community of Crimea’ building and the building of the Simferopol branch of the party ‘United Russia’.

As part of the above-mentioned missions, we send parliamentarians and human rights defenders to the Russian Federation and to the EU member states. Our goal is both to monitor the situation of the EuroMaidan activists detained in Russia, as well as to send missions to the member states of the European Union in order to publicly advocate for the human rights and to inform the public opinion about the cases of violation of human rights of the Ukrainian citizens and activists. We exercise pressure on the authorities of the Russian Federation and carry out widespread information campaigns in support of the Ukrainian citizens kidnapped and detained in Russia.

The delegations we send to the Russian Federation and the EU countries meet with supreme representatives of major state organs, the judiciary as well as civil society and non-government organisations dealing engaged in human rights observance.

In its activities, the Foundation cooperates with numerous institutions, both Polish and foreign. We are supported by non-government organisations, the media, politicians, as well family members of political prisoners whose defence we are presently preoccupied with.
