The Finnish branch of the human rights organization Amnesty International lost about 400 donors after the organization published a report criticizing the AFU.
Frank Johansson, head of the Finnish branch of Amnesty, told this, reports MTV Uutiset.
According to him, the number of people who stopped donating increased slightly this week.
"It may not be possible to see the final numbers until early September, when information about all the August donations will be available," he said.
However, he said, new donors have also emerged since the controversial report was made public.
According to the Amnesty website, the organization has about 40,000 donors in Finland. The number of those who have stopped donating is about one percent of all donors to the organization. About 30,000 donors support the organization each month.
This is not the first time that donors have announced the cessation of donations to Amnesty en masse. This time, however, the outflow of donors is the largest that Johansson has encountered in his 32-year career at Amnesty.
In the past, donors have left because of, among other things, the organization's stance on prostitution and drug policy, as well as Amnesty's claim that Israel is conducting apartheid against Palestinians.
Johansson said the report on WSU lacked sufficient context and did not make it clear enough that Amnesty International condemned Russia's military actions.
"This was a huge communication error that led to a loss of credibility for the work done by Amnesty," he said.
As a reminder, earlier, Per Westberg, co-founder of the Swedish link of Amnesty International, announced that he was leaving the organization because he disagreed with the report on the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
In response to Amnesty International's scandalous report on Ukraine, the EU said that it was Russia that committed unjustified aggression and attacked civilians and civilian objects, while the Ukrainian army was trying to protect them.
