#StandWithUkraine: An overview of fundraisers, protests and actions in the Netherlands

03 March 2022

We are witnessing some of the gravest atrocities in recent history being committed in a country very close to our hearts. We are grieving for what is happening to the people of Ukraine, including many of our close partners, colleagues, and friends. We expressed our deepest solidarity with all those affected by this terrible war, and the regimes of Putin and Lukashenka, and we continue to stay in close contact with our partners to identify how we can support them in these dark days. – Kirsten Meijer, Executive Director Netherlands Helsinki Committee
