Human rights NGO “Man and Law” works remotely due to COVID-19
23 March 2020
Next week, together with the School’s participants, we will finish working on the topics of requests and applications, and then we will start sending them via electronic forms. This way we can check how online services work in the conditions of a pandemic. The importance of uninterrupted operation of electronic services is increasing now, when people are not recommended to visit public places, and many organizations are recommended to switch to remote mode.
We are also temporarily suspending visits to children’s clinics as part of the all-Russian monitoring, since the epidemiological situation in Russia and the world is unpredictable. Despite the fact that international standards tell us that public control is important during the destabilization of the situation in the world, in the current conditions, when visiting clinics, public observers can contribute to the spread of infection and unwittingly increase tension among patients and employees of medical institutions who are working at the limit of their capabilities.
Educational seminars in Yaroslavl and Ulyanovsk for those who are engaged in public control of places of detention are postponed too. As soon as the situation becomes clear, we will notify all participants in advance.
Public observers from the Volga Federal district can still apply to participate in the workshop in Ulyanovsk. We will inform you about the date in advance.

We believe that reducing physical contact (visiting public spaces, traveling on public transport, interacting with strangers) will help reduce the risk of spreading Coronavirus infection. Try to refrain from staying among large groups of people, monitor your health and keep an optimistic attitude.
We are always in touch, take care!
