June 4, Human Rights Humanitarian Mission started its work in Kharkiv, Ukraine.

As reported by volunteers in the mission diary at its Facebook account, on its first day the participants were preparing another portion of humanitarian aid for the persons displaced from the zone of armed conflict, and at the end of the day met with Yeva Hukalova, Chairperson of the civil initiative “Station Kharkiv”, in cooperation with which the Belarusian human rights activists act. Belarusian volunteers coordinated with her the future directions of their activities on rendering aid to the displaced.

“Today we have started working as volunteers at “Station Kharkiv”. What concerns our achievements – we have prepared another batch of humanitarian aid. At the office for work with the displaced and at the railway station we updated the information about the order of the issue of permits for crossing the boundary line and consulted several migrants about it. Tomorrow we will start working on the hotline with the displaced and will held a questioning of the displaced on various issues,” wrote in the diary the coordinator of the mission, human rights activist Dzmitry Salauyou.

The first group of the Human Rights Mission in the Ukraine includes members of Human Rights Center “Viasna”. Later on it is intended to invite volunteers from other human rights organizations as well.
