Alim Aliev. Ukraine's Next Generation


Alim Aliev is drawing attention to tens of thousands of the internally displaced people who left their homes in Crimea and moved to mainland Ukraine following Russia’s annexation of the Ukrainian peninsula. He set up an NGO Crimea SOS which also documents human rights violations in the annexed Crimea.


"Ukraine's Next Generation" is a series of 35 short videos about Ukrainians changing their country. It could be about saving an old movie theater or fighting corruption, about making a city more friendly or launching an online database, but it always requires someone's initiative and a group effort. The project's heroes make these changes happen instead of sitting and waiting until someone else solves every problem.
