• 4 in 5 people (79%) think Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has made it even more vital countries like the UK uphold human rights

• Repealing and replacing the human rights act is only seen as a top 3 priority by just 7% of the population

• Over half of people (57%) do not trust the UK Government to decide what their human rights should be
