Valeria Lutkovska analyzed the last year’s most outraging violations of human rights in the country
21:53, 31 March 2016

The key issues mentioned in the report include: violations of human rights in Crimea, the increased number of internally displaced persons, significant deterioration of social and economic conditions, violation of fundamental rights of Ukrainians detained in Russia and many others.   

According to Lutkovska, to prevent further violations of human rights in Ukraine, the authorities should analyze the most negative tendencies that took place in the country for the last year, such as lack of reforms in healthcare system, failure to revise basic social and economic indexes, which reduces living standards of Ukrainian citizens, and the lack of strategic vision of how to restore control over Ukrainian territories of Donbas and the temporarily occupied Crimea.   

On the other hand, the Ombudsman reckons that the current report touches upon such issues as fighting corruption, access to public information, protection of personal data and fight against all kinds of discrimination, where Ukraine demonstrates more or less tangible progress. These topics are among the determinant ones on Ukraine’s path to EU integration, Lutkovska noted.
