UNITED NATIONS, March 14, /ITAR-TASS/. Observation mission of the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights will probe into all the claims about encroachments on human rights in Ukraine, regardless of who the victims of those encroachments are, Ivan Simonovic, an assistant to the UN Secretary General in charge of the mission, who is currently in Kiev, said Friday in the course of a video conference.
He said the goal of the mission is to watch the observance of human rights all across the Ukrainian territory, including Crimea. Since access to the peninsular region is unavailable at present, the mission members will draw their conclusions from eyewitnesses’ evidence.
Simonovic said the UN has gained experience with observations in the regions where it does not have physical presence, and this should not be a problem in the 21st century.
After failing to get to Crimea earlier this week, Simonovic indicated that he continued attempts to get to the Autonomous Republic’s territory. Also he was going to discuss the situation with the observers working there.
