KIEV, August 29. /ITAR-TASS/. The crisis development in eastern Ukraine proves that military action cannot help solve the country’s current problems, the UN’s Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights, Ivan Simonovic, said on Friday following a regular report of the UN Office's monitoring mission in Ukraine.
He said that peace in Ukraine could be achieved only if the rights of every population group without exception were observed, including the freedom of language and the rights of all minorities and ethnic groups.
Besides looking for the way out of the crisis, it is necessary to find the solution for corruption and poor governing system, which actually were among the major reasons the current conflict’s outbreak, the official said. He believes that Ukraine needs reforms that will no doubt require big money and resources, which are currently wasted on military aims.
Simonovic plans to personally visit eastern Ukraine’s regions in the short term to examine the situation with human rights in the area.
