The Sphere Team Has Filed an Appeal Against the Liquidation of the Foundation

On July 21, the City Court of St. Petersburg appointed a hearing on the grounds of the appeal for liquidation. The trial will take place on September 7 at 14:45.

Vyacheslav Samonov, lawyer of the Sphere team, commented on the appeal:

“There were no sufficient legal grounds for the termination of the organization’s activities. Therefore, we will continue to challenge this illegal decision.”

According to him, this case is rather ideological.

Regardless of the court’s decision, we continue to work and help the LGBT+ community in Russia. We have psychological, legal, and emergency assistance programs, as well as a monitoring team. 

As a reminder, the Kuibyshevsky District Court of St. Petersburg ruled on the liquidation of the Charitable Foundation Sphere on April 21.
