Our latest pro bono achievement

Our latest pro bono achievement is related to the suit filed and won by us on behalf of a Smolensk retiree Mr. Korolkov, a former prisoner of a fascist concentration camp, against the State Federal body “Mutual understanding and reconciliation Fund of the Russian Federation”. The Fund violated the rights of Mr. Korolkov by refusing to pay the compensation for his deceased mother who had also been the prisoner of the concentration camp. This test case has received high publicity and great feedback. The information concerning the case was distributed among highly respected human rights institutions such as the Moscow Bureau on Human Rights.
