Rights in Russia needs your support

On 19 January 2018 we marked eight years since Rights in Russia was founded. In that time, run largely by volunteers, we have translated hundreds of news stories, organised several events with Russian human rights defenders and our publications are among the top items in Google searches about human rights in Russia. If you share our belief in the importance of our mission, there are several ways in which you can help.  If you would like to make a donation, please visit:, and tell your friends who are interested in Russia about our work and encourage them to donate.  You could also contribute as a volunteer – we need more good translators from Russian, experienced editors and, last but not least, people with website design experience. Please get in touch if you yourself or your friends have these skills.

Rights in Russia is a charity registered in the United Kingdom, charity No. 1147245
