On 5 August our colleague, Dmytro Groysman died of a heart attack
Dmytro Groysman was born in 1972 and was by profession a doctor and lawyer. In 1993 he was one of the founders of the Ukrainian section of Amnesty International. From 1994-2000 he worked as coordinator of a national campaign for the abolition of the death penalty in Ukraine.
In 1998 Dmytro founded and headed the Vinnytsa Human Rights Group which worked actively in defence of refugees, as well as on other issues.
The human rights community has lost one of its most prominent individuals, a person for whom there were no restrictions or authorities when confronting injustice.
The Ukrainian Helsinki Human Rights Union extends its condolences to Dmytro’s family and close friends.
