The Dissident Human Rights Award ceremony was held in Washington, during which First Lady Olena Zelenska received the award for the entire people of Ukraine.

As Zelenska posted on Telegram, on July 19 she had the honor of receiving the Dissident Human Rights Award given to the entire Ukrainian people. The award ceremony took place at the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation in Washington.

“This year, for the first time, not a specific person but the entire people of Ukraine received the award for the courageous struggle for freedom against Russia’s war of aggression. Although the Memorial is dedicated to the crimes of communism, it should be remembered that this is only one face of totalitarianism,” the First Lady noted.
