The PLATFORM was created on the initiative of 16 political prisoners of the Kremlin, who were imprisoned for their pro-Ukrainian position and struggled against the Russian regime (during the hybrid phase of the war in 2014-2019). They were released as part of several large exchanges in 2019 and 2020. The platform was founded by Hero of Ukraine Volodymyr Zhemchugov, director Oleg Sentsov, writer Stanislav Aseev, journalists Mykola Semena and Roman Sushchenko, public activists Volodymyr Balukh, Pavlo Hryb, Edem Bekirov, Igor Movenk, Yevhen Panov, Oleksandr Kolchenko, Ismail Ramazanov, Oleksandr Shumkov, public activist Mykola Karpyuk, scientist Igor Kozlovsky, politicians Ilma Umerov and Akhtem Chiygoz.
