Ukraine has turned to the ODIHR, asking to follow the human rights protection situation in the temporarily occupied territories in Donbas and Crimea. In conditions of the raging Covid-19 pandemic, these violations are an increasingly common thing in these areas.
This is mentioned in the statement by Yevhen Tsymbaliuk, the permanent reperesentative of Ukraine in the international organizations based in Vienna. The official made this statement during the 1267th session of OSCE Permanent Council, UNN news agency wrote.
Thus, Ukraine urged OSCE to follow how much Russia lives up to the ODIHR's recommendations.
Tsymbaliuk also said the situation worsened, given the outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic.
The statement says that occupant administrations of the self-proclaimed "republics" in Donbas created conditions that pose a real threat to lives and health of Ukrainian citizens, as combat against coronavirus continues.
