Радикалы в Украине ограничивают свободу граждан – ООН

In 35 cases the violators of human rights in Ukraine were radicals

Right-wing radicals involved in a quarter of cases of restriction of freedom in Ukraine, said the UN monitoring mission.

The monitoring mission of the UN on human rights in Ukraine recorded over the past year, 164 violations of the right to enjoyment of fundamental freedoms in the country. At least 35 cases in which the offenders were members of right-wing movements. This was stated by the head of mission Fiona Fraser, reports UKRINFORM.

“We have published a separate report regarding civil liberties in Ukraine on the eve of presidential, parliamentary and local elections. It covers the period from 1 January 2018 to 15 January 2019. During this period we have documented 164 violations of the right to realization of the fundamental freedoms in Ukraine, at least 35 cases in which offenders were the people that directly involve or are related to right-wing movements,” Fraser said.

She informed that among the trends that have affected the realization of the fundamental freedoms in Ukraine, the report refers to landmark cases and acid attacks and gunshot wounds, which resulted in the death of two activists.

“Impunity reigns in most documented cases. We see the efforts of the government to ensure the investigation of resonance cases. However, we urge the authorities to do more to bring the perpetrators to justice, including those necessary to establish the offence and take into account the motives instead of the cases purely as hooliganism”, – said the Chairman of the UN Monitoring mission on human rights in Ukraine.
