Alternativshchik is a service that provides information and support for conscientious objectors who wish to do “alternative service” instead of being conscripted into the Russian army.

For some years, Alternativshchik was published as a newsletter several times a year, with around 1,000 copies being sent throughout Russia, often via protestant churches.  Printing and distribution costs were covered by FHM.

The service has now gone online with a website.  FHM assisted with the transition and  continues to sponsor operating costs and provide technical advice.
