UN: One of the types of torture in the Donbas - sexual assault

In the Donbass, violence is used by the opposing parties as torture, according to the report of the United Nations Monitoring Mission on Human Rights in Ukraine.

UN: One of the types of torture in the Donbas - sexual assault


“The document covers the period from March 14 2014 to January 31 2017 and covers the whole territory of Ukraine, as well as the Russian Crimea. Particular attention is paid to the eastern regions of the country ", - comments RIA News.

According to the information, during the conflict both parties committed acts of sexual violence against the population. It is noted that "the majority of documented cases occurred when people were deprived of their liberty by government forces or armed groups."

According to the authors, “cruel treatment was used as a form of torture for the purpose of punishment, humiliation or a way to obtain a confession to crimes”. “Threats against the relatives and children of the victims” were also used to increase pressure.

The report provides testimony from people who were forced to give false evidence.

“The numerous checkpoints and the presence of Ukrainian military and armed groups in populated areas increases the risk of sexual violence against civilians, especially women”, - underline the authors. At the same time, they point to the lack of specialists for the provision of psychological assistance and support to victims, especially in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions.

It is also noted that “the Ukrainian justice system lacks laws, functional capabilities and experience in order to effectively investigate reports of sexual violence, which leads to impunity for criminals.”

Experts emphasize that "based on documented cases, there is no reason to believe that sexual violence was used for strategic or tactical purposes."

At the same time, many of the documented cases can amount to torture or cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment. Some of the documented cases could amount to war crimes,
the report says.

At the end of the document, the mission gives 29 specific recommendations to the Kiev authorities, the armed forces (militias), Russia, and "the international community and donors who determine the steps needed to prevent sexual violence, improve response and guarantee justice for the victims."

    The most important torture is the same hatefulness of the population of Donbass, as in Ukraine, on the other side of the trenches, the Ukrainian greed of local chieftains and the unwillingness to do something for the inhabitants themselves, hence the death of Motor, Givi, the lack of unification of the DPR and LPR, the surrender of territories, unwillingness to fight for their land ... And the screams that they will take Kiev are nothing more than the release of a couple of desperate ordinary soldiers who are sick of the hell out that they sell his skin like toilet paper at the city market in Donetsk.

      Ukraine damned land, this is the territory where the Russians cease to consider themselves Russian and begin to fight with the Russians who have not forgotten that they are Russian.
      it was so more than once, it was so during the Scythian-Sarmatian wars, during the so-called Iga, this is happening now.

      In the spring of the fourteenth, the Donetsk people reminded me of the self-styled ninety-first. That is the same accordion: we feed all of us (Ukraine), it’s worth separating and pandering
      Russia is in full swing for us, Putin promised to protect ...
      After all, no one thought to fight. But it happened. They have mastered that and have more.

        Yes, not only them, and we thought so. We expected that after the Crimea and DonbassOur will be! But it did not grow together. West announced sanctions, and Putin changed his mind. And the people in the Donbass remained extreme.

And since you are just a fan on the TV screen, you can still drink beer, but demanding is not your function. Although, true recognition goes to your "plus". wink

      You Maz already decided, you for whom? The great commander. Or do you know all the facts? What they heard in the news (and from different sources), and let's knock on the keyboard, all under one comb. The cherished mantra, this is a "hut with the edge." You were there? If such problems were solved so simply, then be sure that they would have already been solved. Moreover, the roots of the problem lie far beyond Ukraine, and Donbass is only the tip of the iceberg. And I dare to note that your Urykal attitude, it’s supposedly high time to crush the Ukrainian junta (although no one argues with this), directly contradicts the “Minsk agreements”, which no one has yet canceled. It is clear that they do not work, but then let's all become like Ukraine. So far, your rhetoric is no different from the logic of Maidan herd, although expressed on the other hand.

    It is interesting: how does the UN generally know anything about the situation in the Donbass, if there is no one there except the OSCE, and these people see nothing and don’t tell anyone?
    From reports of funds with offices in America that take materials from networks ??

You focus on sexual crimes, but keep quiet about the crime of AUTHORITY OF UKRAINE against the people of Donetsk and Lugansk.

    Yes, they are specific globals. One would be enough - execution on the spot, or by a court verdict according to the laws of wartime.

      execution on the spot, or by a court verdict under martial law.
      Then there was the "bloody tyrant" Stalin, who could issue such "barbaric" laws. Now it’s much more democratic, why shoot, when there are 29 recommendations. In general, the article is somehow muddy, like the entire UN Security Council policy. All in general, no specifics, in the style of Western media.

    The document covers the period from March 14 2014 of the year to January 31 of the 2017 of the year and covers the entire territory of Ukraine, as well as the Russian Crimea.
    Here about Crimea can be more detailed? !!! What kind of nonsense? Although, perhaps a baby boom caused by a power outage in the Crimea? Maybe they mean it? In general, the UN in recent years is increasingly reminiscent of our own State Duma: the same performance

    Three years of war, do you think the Donbass did not rise? Wake up. It was Kharkiv and Odessa that did not rise (although there were attempts), and if global problems (confrontation between the USA and Russia) are solved in the Donbass, this only emphasizes the feat of the Donbass fighters who are at the forefront of the conflict. Decisions in the end are not made in Donetsk or Lugansk.
