As of November 15, about a million Ukrainians are staying in detention across the country. Lyudmyla Denisova, the parliamentary envoy for human rights posted this on Facebook.
'Almost a million people are currently in detention. These are not only penitentiary facilities, but also social care, healthcare and education facilities where people are held due to decisions of courts of administrative bodies', Denisova wrote.
She added that the detainees need protection, and they cannot be humiliated or tortured.
According to the official, the government offered to create the Coordination Council for implementation of the national preventive mechanism. 'The main idea is in implementing the regular independent visits of all detention places... 130 monitors and over 50 experts directly participate in monitoring visits. They analyze the facts of violations of human rights, sorting out the reasons and conditions for such violations', the Ukrainian ombudswoman wrote.
