Right to Protection

Kyiv, Ukraine
Joined May 2018

Right to Protection (R2P) is dedicated to protecting refugees, other vulnerable migrants - the internally displaced (IDPs), the stateless and those at risk of statelessness and the undocumented.



Presence in: Ukraine
Focus: Citizenship, Governance

Our mission: Right to Protection takes a holistic approach to aiding the internally displaced, persons in need of international protection, the stateless and those at risk of statelessness by providing direct legal assistance to individuals and advocating for all-encompassing changes to legal and institutional frameworks based on equality, dignity, compassion and in accordance with international human rights standards.

What we do: We provide our beneficiaries with direct legal services including representation before national and international authorities and courts, and help IDPs in Ukraine access state benefits and start afresh. In addition, we monitor the human rights situation in the field and promote social cohesion by administering community-participation initiatives aimed at integrating IDP and host communities. R2P also drives systemic change; we undertake advocacy, raise awareness of legal rights, litigate strategically at national and international forums, and perform legislative analysis and drafting to modernize and align Ukraine’s current legal frameworks with international human rights standards. R2P also works with administrative and law enforcement authorities, the judiciary, and state funded legal-aid providers as well as civil society to build their capacity to respond to challenges facing vulnerable population groups.

As far as I am managing the project "Legal assistance to stateless persons in Ukraine" funded by UNHCR I would like to focus on the issues of citizenship in foreign perspective. My idea is not to leave anyone behind meaning that none is stateless in ideal world.

I am a practicing lawyer of the organization “Right to Protection”, which provides legal assistance to stateless persons or at risk of statelessness. This project was founded in 2017 and at the moment we understand what problems can be solved with the help of legal assistance, and which are not (given the lack of legislation on stateless persons in Ukraine). Legal assistance is to collect information that confirms the facts of birth, residence, study, work, etc., with the aim of using it later to identify a stateless person or in court to confirm facts that have legal force on which the acquisition of citizenship depends. Providing interests in court and support in the migration service.

Я практикующий адвокат организации "Право на защиту" которая предоставляет правовую помощь лицам без гражданства или под риском без гражданства. Данный проект был основан в 2017 году и на данный момент мы понимаем какие проблемы возможно решить с помощью оказания правовой помощи, а какие нет (с учетом отсутствия законодательства по лицам без гражданства в Украине). Правовая помощь заключается в сборе информации, которая подтверждает факты рождения, проживания, обучения, работы и др. с целью использования в дальнейшем для идентификации лица без гражданства или в суде для подтверждения фактов, имеющих юридическую силу, от которых зависит приобретение гражданства. Предоставление интересов в суде и сопровождение в миграционной службе.
