The Russian Federation, the occupying power, has not implemented any of the recommendations for improving the human rights situation in Crimea made in previous periodic and thematic reports of the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission.

Matilda Bogner, Head of the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine (HRMMU), made a corresponding statement during the presentation of the 31st report on the human rights situation in Ukraine, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

She informed that since the launch of the Mission in Ukraine, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights has issued 31 periodic and 8 thematic reports containing “concrete practical and fact-based” recommendations for improving the human rights situation in Ukraine.

“After our first review in September 2020, we concluded that the Government of Ukraine fully implemented 12 per cent of the Mission’s recommendations made in its previous periodic and thematic reports on Ukraine, and partially implemented 57 per cent, leaving 31 per cent unimplemented. This progress inspires optimism,” Bogner said.

As noted, self-proclaimed “republics” fully implemented three per cent of recommendations and partially implemented 19 per cent of recommendations, leaving 78 per cent unimplemented.

“The Russian Federation as the occupying power in Crimea have not implemented any of the assessed recommendations, and partly implemented three per cent of these recommendations, leaving 97 per cent of recommendations unimplemented,” the Head of the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine underscored.

She urged to implement the recommendations made by the Human Rights Monitoring Mission and expressed the UN’s readiness to assist in these efforts.

The 31st report on the human rights situation in Ukraine covers the period from 1 August 2020 to 31 January 2021.
