Kyiv, 10 December, 2018 – On the International Human Rights Day, 10 December, the results of the second nationwide sociological study “What Ukrainians Know and Think of Human Rights: Progress Study (2016-2018)” will be presented at 10:30 a.m. at UNIAN Information Agency (4 Khreshchatyk street, Kyiv).

What rights are of top priority for Ukrainians and what do they do to defend them? Are they ready to give in their rights and freedoms facing financial challenges? How the human rights situation has changed since the Revolution of Dignity? Can the tortures against “enemies” be justified? Is the lynch law acceptable? Do people think the rights of some vulnerable groups can be limited? During the press conference the experts from the Ilko Kucheriv Democratic Initiatives Foundation, Human Rights Information Centre, and United Nations Development Programme will present the results of the recent study and will comment on how the perception has changed since 2016.

Media representatives are warmly invited to attend:
