The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights was shocked with the atrocities of security forces in the eastern Ukraine. This had been mentioned in the 16th report on the situation in Ukraine.

 

Head of Mission expressed serious concern that the SBU continues to abduct and hold people in custody without contact with the outside world, without informing relatives and friends even on the fact of detention, not to mention their alleged crimes. 

 

The mission found numerous and blatant facts of human rights violations. In particular, raping cases of young women by the Ukrainian soldiers at checkpoints. “This is a quite serious matter. We are not telling this is massive, but such cases are still exist”, said Fiona Fraser.
