This initiative has been timed to coincide with the organisation’s sixth anniversary.


On 18 April on the occasion of its sixth birthday, the Centre (classed as a foreign agent in Russia) announced an extension to its geographical operations. The Centre will now be able to help Russian-speaking people all over the world, regardless of citizenship, nationality or gender.


“This means that wherever you are in the world, you will always be able to turn to us for support. Our psychologists can offer assistance to people during difficult times, with support groups also available to provide help for those who are feeling isolated”, said a Centre’s spokesperson. This has been made possible thanks to a large donation to the Centre from the Russian tennis player Daria Kasatkina.


In addition to its geographical outreach, the organisation has added two new forms of psychological counselling to its portfolio. You can now seek help if you:


  • Have experienced harassment;
  • Witnessed violence or;
  • Your child has been a victim of abuse.


The Centre’s lawyers will offer legal advice on issues that relate to current Russian legislation, even if a person is based abroad. If the problem is covered under foreign laws, the Centre will advise on how best to proceed and provide contact numbers for support and human rights centres.


The organisation has produced guidance for the following countries: Armenia, Austria, Brazil, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Kazakhstan, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Turkey and the UK.


In order to get help, you can apply online on the website (, and select what form of support is required under the “I need help” section. You can also call the Centre on +7 (495) 916-30-00 or via WhatsApp.
