UNITED NATIONS, March 27. /TASS/. The mandate of the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine has been extended until mid-June, a spokeswoman for the world organisation told TASS on Thursday.
"The mission has been extended until mid-June," Eri Kaneko said.
UN observers have been monitoring the situation with human rights in Ukraine since March 2014 preparing reports on the human rights situation which are later discussed at the UN Security Council.
The estimated number of people killed in eastern Ukraine since April 2014 has topped 6,000 despite the ceasefire introduced on February 15, the UN Human Rights Office said.
