While Russia is often accused of human rights violations, the country has decided to show its regard for people’s rights and philanthropic activities.
The President of Russia Vladimir Putin presented the national awards Thursday for outstanding achievements in human rights and charity activity.
The National Award for Outstanding Achievements in Human Rights Activity was conferred on Yelizaveta Glinka, executive director of the Spravedlivaya Pomoshch [Fair Aid] International Public Organisation.
The National Award for Outstanding Achievements in Charity Work was conferred on Alexander Tkachenko, general director of ANO Children’s Hospice.
“Today is the first time that we are presenting two new national awards: for outstanding achievements in human rights and charity work,” Putin said.
Yelizaveta Glinka is a familiar figure to hospital patients, people facing disaster, children in Donbass and in Syria.
Father Alexander oversees children’s hospices and puts his strength, life and faith into this labour of helping seriously ill children.
“I hope that the state authorities, civil society groups, and religious representatives throughout the country will lend their support to his initiatives,” Putin said.
