KIEV, June 06 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s parliament-appointed Foreign Minister Andrei Deshchitsa has sent a letter to United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon asking to extend the mandate of the human rights monitoring mission for another three months, the Ukrainian foreign ministry said on Friday.
“In his letter to the United Nations secretary general, the Ukrainian foreign minister highly assessed the mission’s activities, its objective, unbiased approach to highlighting the human rights situation in Ukraine and its constructive cooperation with Ukrainian government agencies,” the ministry said.
The United Nations mission arrived in Ukraine at the invitation of the Ukrainian government and started its work in that country from March 15, 2014. It is tasked to survey the human rights situation in Ukraine and prepare reports for the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.
