The UN Human Rights Council (OHCHR) passed the resolution called "Cooperation with Ukraine and assistance in human rights area". It means that the UN authority will keep considering the cases of human rights abuse taking place all over the territory of Ukraine, including the occupied Crimea and Donbas. Ukraine's Foreign Ministry reported that on July 14.
The document foresees that the OHCHR will keep considering such cases over the next two years. Such resolutions are initiated by Ukraine and approved every two years since 2014, when Russia invaded Crimea and Donbas. Thus, it is the fifth such resolution.
Last month, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres prepared the interim report on the situation with human rights in Crimea, which focuses on continuing persecutions of local population.
Earlier, Lyudmyla Denisova, the Ukraininan parliamentary ombudsman reported that Ukrainian citizen Natalia Stetsenko, the illegally detained inmate of Donetsk remand centre is in critical condition. The lady suffers from chronical disease of her spine, and she needs immediate treatment.
