The latest from Freedom House:

A Saudi-led military coalition detained two prominent Yemeni human rights defenders as they prepared to fly out of the country. 

In response to the Iranian government’s detention of Nasrin Sotoudeh, a prominent human rights lawyer, on June 13, 2018, and the judiciary’s earlier announcement that citizens facing security-related charges may be defended only by government-approved lawyers, Freedom House issued a statement.

 A rise in violent incidents initiated by radical groups targeting ethnic and religious minorities, feminists, LGBT people, and other communities should prompt an effective response by Ukraine's government.

Amnesty International, Front Line Defenders, Human Rights Watch, and Freedom House together released a joint letter urging Ukrainian officials to address the violent attacks perpetuated by hate groups in Ukraine. 

A Saudi Arabian-led coalition launched an attack on Yemen’s western port city of Hodeidah on June 13, 2018. 

Upon release of the Nations in Transit report “Far-right Extremism as a Threat to Ukrainian Democracy,” Freedom House issued a statement.

З виходом публікації в рамках "Країни перехідного періоду" під назвою "Ультраправий екстремізм як загроза українській демократії", Freedom House опублікувала таку заяву.
