Dear Friends,

Our UK-based charity, Rights in Russia, is now looking to raise funds to continue and expand our work.

We have been working since January 2010 to make the views of Russia’s human rights community, and in general news about human rights in Russia, available to a wider audience.

We currently run four web-based projects:

1) Human Rights in Russia: a website devoted to publishing news, views and reviews about human rights in Russia.

2) in English: a website devoted to publishing translations from Russia's premier human rights website,

3) Internet Freedom in Russia: a website devoted to publishing translations produced in the course of a project by Agora Human Rights Association to monitor and protect freedom of the Internet in Russia today.

4) Human Rights Groups in Russia: a website devoted to providing information about human rights groups in Russia (under construction).

We have recently developed a funding plan, and are now seeking to raise money to meet these targets.

We believe it is of vital importance that news about human rights in Russia reaches the widest possible audience in the rest of the world. 

We invite you to share our belief, and support our work.

Yours sincerely,

Simon Cosgrove
Director, Rights in Russia
