‘The protection of the human rights all over the world, including temporary occupied Crimea and Donbas is our priority’, the president emphasized.
Ukraine was elected a member of the United Nations (UN) Human Rights Council for 2018-2020 in October 2017. Ukraine used to be the nonpermanent member of the UN Security Council before.
The UN Human Rights Council consists of 47 members elected for three-year by the UN General Assembly. The government of Ukraine thinks that the participation in the council will allow to fight against the violations of the human rights in occupied territories more effective.
