Gray Zone
Public Verdict Foundation, Russia

ABOUT: Gray Zone was initiated by the Public Verdict Foundation and is implemented by a group of human rights lawyers and organizations to prevent the spread of COVID19 throughout Russian penitentiary institutions and detention centers. A digital map reflects each COVID case reported by either convicts or their relatives, which allows lawyers and human rights defenders to file inquiries demanding action on the part of the administration. An infected person should be isolated and receive medical care. Administrations should provide required information. Relatives can initiate inquiries independently, too.
