OVD-Info is an independent media project on human rights and political persecutions in Russia. We provide and coordinate legal assistance in cases related to the restrictions of freedom of peaceful assembly and study the emerging problems this helps both to develop tactical solutions for today, and to lay the foundation for future changes. By donating to OVD-Info, you contribute both to the support of specific people and to changing the whole picture of human rights observance in Russia.
Freedom of assembly in Russia is consistently repressed: the rules for holding peaceful actions are being tightened, people are being detained en masse and criminal cases are being brought up. OVD-Info provides legal support, publishes articles on political persecutions, analyzes data and prepares reports.
OVD-Info works with the problem of political persecution from different angles - this helps both to develop tactical solutions for today, and to lay the foundation for future changes in the system: * Legal aid * News and media * IT development * Research and analytics * Hotline * Volunteer coordination
Observance of the constitutional right to freedom of assembly and freedom of speech.
