| Global Affairs Canada | statements

“We deplore the decisions by two Russian courts to forcibly close International Memorial and the Memorial Human Rights Centre.

The claim by Russian authorities that the Memorial Human Rights Centre’s principled and peaceful work ‘justifies extremism and terrorism’ cannot be accepted. Memorial’s work has never been more needed.
