Lyudmila Alekseeva was born in 1927 in the now occupied Yalta. She was a member of the Soviet dissident movement and participated in the publication “Chronicle of current events”.

In 1976, Alexeeva was a founding member of the Moscow Helsinki group, the oldest human rights organization in Russia, and a year later emigrated to the United States.

Alekseev 2002 consisted of the Commission on human rights under the President of the Russian Federation, which was then transformed into a Council for human rights.

As he wrote, “the FACTS,” Alexeyev in recent years often criticized the current policy of the Kremlin “crackdown”. So, in 2015, she strongly opposed the law authorizing the Constitutional court to ignore the decisions of international courts, especially the European court of human rights (ECHR) if they “violate the rule of the Russian Constitution”. She then said that the entry of this law may infringe the rights of Russians who come to Strasbourg without achieving justice at home.
