Germany allocates EUR 25,000 for human rights protection in Ukraine

Ambassador to Ukraine Reinhard Schafers
gave EUR 25,000 to Ukrainian public organizations for the implementation of
three projects on the protection of human rights in
Ukraine, as reported with reference to the
Web site of Deutsche Welle.

Summing up
the results of the contest, which was initiated by the German Foreign Ministry
this spring, Schafers noted the great interest of
Ukrainian organizations in this contest. One of the winners of the contest was
the Cherkasy regional committee of soldiers’ mothers,
which, jointly with the Ukrainian Defense Ministry,
will draw up mechanisms for ensuring human rights in the Ukrainian army.

committee’s head, Svitlana Kasian,
told Deutsche Welle about the committee’s plans to
introduce the institute of authorized persons to resolve internal conflicts. But
the main thing, she said, is informing soldiers about international
conventions, Ukrainian laws and other guarantees to their human rights.
