Three new winners of the “Talents for Ukraine” grant program! This is an advocate who collects evidence of russian crimes, a reading expert and publisher of the popular science media “Kunsht”. Each of them received a $5,000 grant from the KSE Foundation for their own development.
Yurii Bilous – an advocate who collects evidence of russian crimes on the territory of Ukraine and defends victims of war crimes in Ukrainian courts. Previously, he was engaged in commercial advocacy, but after the start of the war, he already collected hundreds of hours of video recordings with the stories of Ukrainians who survived murders, torture, witnessed the occupation, saw with their own eyes the destruction of civilian objects and other violations of the rules of war. These materials will be used in cases against russia at the International Criminal Court in The Hague and in criminal cases against the russian military in Ukraine. Last year, our winner became a laureate of the National Human Rights Award for a special contribution to the protection of human rights in Ukraine.
