The United States called on all sides of the conflict in Ukraine to solve the problem with serious human rights violations as referred in the report of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, reports the State Department spokesman Mark Toner at the briefing.
"We reviewed the report. We regret the fact that the conflict in Ukraine claimed the lives of already 9 thousand people, and more than 20 thousand were injured. We call on the so-called authorities of territories controlled by the separatists, to stop committing such human rights violations as murder, torture, ill-treatment of prisoners, illegal detention, use of forced labor, restrictions on freedom of movement and freedom of assembly, as well as the prohibition of expression of opinion " - Toner said.
He also called on Kyiv to draw conclusions from the report and punish those responsible for violations.
