Truth Hounds

Truth Hounds Ukraine aims to advance accountability for international crimes in conflict-affected Eastern Ukraine and the annexed Crimean peninsula. In 2016, it emerged out of the International Partnership for Human Rights field office in Ukraine, established in 2014 after the Maidan protests. Truth Hounds focuses on the monitoring, documentation and investigation of violations of international humanitarian law. It seeks justice for victims at the International Criminal Court, through national accountability processes, in foreign domestic courts, and via sanction regimes. The organisation undertakes trainings and awareness-raising with law enforcement, local communities, and university students, and engages with prosecutors and investigators. It also shares its expertise with Ukrainian civil society organisations on the monitoring and documentation of threats and attacks against human rights defenders.
