The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights set up a monitoring mission in Ukraine last March to gather information on human rights abuse. The mission has 34 employees working in the capital Kiev, Lvov (Western Ukraine), Odessa, Donetsk and Kharkov (South-East Ukraine).
At least 48 people died and more than 200 were injured in the clashes and the fire in the Trade Unions House. Another 48 people are listed as missing.

They assert that the death toll reached 116 but that the Kiev authorities are concealing the facts.
