Putin's policy of cultivating foreign leaders can backfire in democracies.

In response to President Trump’s comments during his European trip, including his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Freedom House released a statement.

The decision to withdrawn the United States from the United Nations Human Rights Council is counterproductive for U.S. security and foreign policy and will make it more difficult to advance human rights and aid victims of abuse. 

We the undersigned are deeply disappointed with the Administration’s decision to withdraw the United States from the United Nations Human Rights Council, the premier intergovernmental human rights body at the global level. This decision is counterproductive to American national security and foreign policy interests and will make it more difficult to advance human rights priorities and aid victims of abuse around the world.
