About us

The Media Initiative for Human Rights (MIHR) is a media team that changes foreign and domestic policy for Ukraine’s integration into the free world.

Journalists Maria Tomak and Olha Reshetylova launched the organization in September 2016. At first, the main activity of MIHR was journalistic investigations of human rights violations followed by legal support of cases. Currently, MIHR combines monitoring and recording human rights violations in connection with the armed aggression of the Russian Federation, coverage and investigation of separate episodes, analysis of collected data, and advocacy activities.

For the team, it is crucial not only to talk about the problems of human rights violations in the occupation and the war zone but, above all, to influence their solution and encourage an appropriate response to them both at the national and international levels.
