The representative of Ukraine in the humanitarian sub-group TKG Irina Gerashchenko will require to assess the situation of sexual harassment to the employee of the OSCE.

The representative of Ukraine in the humanitarian sub-group of the Trilateral contact group Irina Gerashchenko commented on the situation with sexual harassment, an armed insurgent to the employee of the OSCE SMM. She wrote about this on his Facebook page, commenting on the statement by the head of Special monitoring mission of OSCE in Ukraine Ertugrul Apakan about the need for a response from the “DNR”, identify and punish the guilty.

“Subscribe to the statement of Mr. Apakan and will require to assess this shameful fact, and on the humanitarian sub-group and TAG. We need to get the name of the villain. On the TAG from ORDO should sound evaluation and last name!” – said Gerashchenko .

In addition, she noted that he was preparing the Deputy’s request to law enforcement agencies to immediately Institute criminal proceedings on this fact. “For all crimes in Ukraine, including the temporarily uncontrolled regions, rebels sooner or later will have to answer. And sexual violence are crimes that have no Statute of limitations. In the Balkan countries where the war ended 2 decades ago, and are still such an investigation, and all involved in sex crimes immediately and permanently go to jail”, – said the representative of Ukraine.

Later, she made another message in which he mentioned the case of such attitude to itself from representatives ORDO: “by the Way, at one of the meetings of the TAG representatives ORDO allowed himself and towards me demeaning sexist comments from the series: “women, we will speak in another place and in another way”. I then broke them, and our delegation too. Gryzlov did not say anything… the OSCE representative Martin Sajdik also condemned then sexist statement, “representatives of the republics”… Sexism and blatant humiliation of women is the hallmark of the leaders of the militants”.
