“Excessive use of force is obviously a major concern in current situation,” UNHCHR spokesman Rupert Colville said at a briefing on Tuesday.

In late April, head of Ukraine’s Central Election Committee Mykhailo Okhendovsky stated that the extraordinary presidential elections scheduled for May 25 in Ukraine would take place in any case. “Despite the uneasy situation in the east, nothing can disrupt the expression of people’s will,” he told local media in an interview.
He added that the legislation allows considering elections as valid even if they really took place only at one ballot station. In addition, the head of Ukraine’s election committee expressed hope that the situation in the country’s south-east would be solved in the nearest time.
