Eastern Human Rights Group lawyer and director Vira Yastrebova said this during the presentation of the Group's reports on the situation in the temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions, an correspondent reports. Vira said “The cynicism of the actions of the Russian Federation lies in the fact that 70 percent of coal mining enterprises and mines have been shut down over the years of occupation, salaries have been reduced significantly, no pension payments, no freedom of peaceful assembly or unionization. All those were usurped and is aimed at the political influence of those people who call themselves the so-called 'trade union leaders and promote non-existent quasi-republics.”

Public organization “Eastern Human Rights Group” - a human rights organization founded in July 2014 in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions, during active hostilities in the eastern regions of Ukraine, with the goal of maximally counteracting violations of human rights, as well as protecting the fundamental rights and freedoms of man and citizen. The starting point in the creation of the organization was preceded by numerous human rights violations in the war zone. On July 27, 2014, in the city of Debaltseve, a group of lawyers (immigrants) signed a protocol on the creation of the human rights organization “Eastern Human Rights Group”. The word "Eastern" in the name of the organization was chosen in connection with the military conflict in the east of Ukraine
