Among main obstacles, the UN mission emphasizes the deficit of judges in Ukraine and the law, which hinders the investigation of the murders of law enforcers. Due to it, the UN recommends Ukraine:

  • to provide investigation of each and every murder committed during protests in Maidan;
  • to change the procedure of proceedings in absentia, allowing the reconsideration of the court sentence after detention of the defendant;
  • to abolish ‘law on immunity’;
  • to provide the appearance before the court of the suspects and defendants releases from the custody.
