The representative of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation presented the experience of the Russian NHRI, outlining new forms of activities (opening of a "hot line", receiving citizens by video-conferencing, etc.) and new subjects of citizens' appeals, in particular, on the issue of the return of Russian citizens to their homeland in the conditions of closed borders. The event participants were presented with a thematic report "Protecting human rights in the context of the spread of a new coronavirus infection" to better understand the activities of the Russian Commissioner during the COVID-19 pandemic.
