Two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank has announced she will donate her appearance fees from Ramzan Kadyrov’s birthday celebrations to charity.

The actress caused controversy last week when she attended the event in the Chechen capital of Grozny to honor Kadyrov, who is accused of human rights atrocities. He is accused of torture, killings and running the country with an iron fist.

Swank – who was unaware of political policies in the country – says she “deeply regrets” her participation, and has vowed to donate her personal appearance fees to various charities.

Human Rights Watch is urging others who were at the event to follow her lead.
