Freedom House and partners, under our joint initiative United to Confront Hate-Motivated Violence in Ukraine, seek to improve Ukraine’s policies to prevent and respond to hate‐motivated violence. Our efforts unite communities targeted with hate‐motivated violence in a broad coalition aimed at monitoring, documenting, and analyzing hate-motivated crimes and incidents in Ukraine. Equipped with data gathered from both open sources and interviews, we develop and advocate for policies to more effectively tackle hate-motivated violence.

This Hate Monitor is a snapshot of monitoring, documentation, and verification of incidents by a network of 28 monitors across the country. The subject of the monitoring is incidents of hate-motivated violence and violence against events organized to promote the rights of communities targeted with hate-motivated violence.
