The Deputy Foreign Minister of Ukraine Sergiy Kyslytsya demands to add problems of sexual abuse in occupied Crimea and Donbas into the scope of the respective UN mandates for the second time for the second time already. This is reported by the press service of the Foreign Minister.

“The need to document the cases of sex abuse is of prime importance, as there are not Ukrainian law enforcement authorities on the territory of the occupied Crimea and Donbas under the militants’ control, which makes it impossible to make the case of sex abuse,” reads the announcement.
