The Right to Protection, CF (R2P) is a charitable fund that strives for Ukraine to become a country where refugees, stateless, non-citizens, and displaced persons enjoy dignity and protection.
Since the beginning of the conflict in the East of Ukraine R2P has been monitoring the protection situation of IDPs, providing legal assistance, and strengthening humanitarian response in Donetsk, Luhansk, Kharkiv, Dnipro, Zaporizhzhya regions.
In 2020 R2P implemented the peacebuilding project which drew together experts working in the field of mining and ecology. Over the course of ten dialogue sessions the group shared their expertise, identified environmental issues in the Donbass region that affected both sides of the conflict, and drafted a Resolution for the mitigation of ecological risks in the now devastated region.
In 2021 R2P is going to extend the cross contact line expert dialogue on ecological and resource restoration of the Donbass territory affected by Russian aggression against Ukraine.
