A founding meeting was held in Germany to establish a branch of the Free Russia Forum. The participants discussed and fixed the basic principles of the organization, the main goals and objectives for the coming time. Along with representative functions, the plans of the newly established branch include projects to provide material and humanitarian aid to Ukraine and refugees, as well as working with the German authorities to impose targeted sanctions on German citizens who support aggression and cooperate with Russian business, media and officials. As a result of the vote, four co-ordinators of the German branch of the FRF were elected.
The Free Russia Forum was established to unite Russians, both inside the country and abroad, who believe in democracy, freedom, and human rights.
