ADC “Memorial” continues its work

Checks of non-commercial organizations in Russia, which have started in late March this year and took more than a month, have consumed a lot of time and energy of the human rights defenders, including the staff of ADC “Memorial”. The check has resulted in launching an administrative case against ADC “Memorial” based on Article 19.34 (parts 1 and 2) of the Code on administrative violations. This has increased our workload a lot – we have to prepare for the court hearings, work on defending our position and proving our innocence. This continues to take a lot of time and energy. Many people, especially journalists, asked us whether it had interrupted regular operations of our organization, i.e. defending human rights and continuing charity work on the projects that we pursue. In spite of all the troubles ADC “Memorial” continues its work.
