The Government all across the country has launched political repressions against the Memorial; our branches in all cities are under severe governmental pressure. We have been labeled as "foreign agents", Federal Security Service is filing complaints to the Federal Supervision Agency for Information Technologies, Communications and Mass Media (Roskomnadzor). The courts impose fines amounting to the equivalent of USD 73 000 upon us for violating inherently unjust and impossible-to-follow laws which destroy the civil society; more fines are expected to be issued.

However, we are an NGO and we don't work for the Government. We work for people and together with people. We know thousands of people across the country who need our support on a daily basis and we will carry on with our work.
Why we need your support
We know that our museum collection and the archive are in high demand. We know that many historical documents from the Soviet era are still waiting to be published. We know that many people still seek help in searching for their relatives abducted recently. We know that more than 300 political prisoners and their families need our help. We know that our support is needed with cases filed in Russian courts and the European Court of Human Rights.

We know that people want to learn, remember, seek truth and justice. Our common mission, shared memory and responsibility is to continue this work in Russia.
We know that our databases are not yet complete. We constantly help people to find out about the fates and burial places of their family members
