The first Deputy head of the Verkhovna Rada Iryna Gerashchenko said that on may 15 in the UN security Council held a debate on sexual violence as a tactic of war and terrorism, and the Ukrainian Ambassador will have something to tell. She wrote about this in Facebook.
“On may 15 in the UN Security Council held an open debate on “Sexual violence as a tactic of war and terrorism.” Ukrainian Ambassador Volodymyr Yelchenko will have something to say on this terrible subject. The recent evidence is glaring, today here received information about sexual harassment militants… to representatives of the mission of SMM OSCE,” – said the MP.
According to her, I can only imagine what is happening in the occupied territories against the civilian population and “what are the armed humans against the women.”

The parliamentarian noted that this is why Ukraine seeks admission in the occupied territories of the international monitoring missions on human rights and so insistently invites to visit the country special representatives of the UN Secretary General on the protection of the rights of women and children and on sexual violence in conflict.
“Immediately, I note that also strongly condemn the facts of sexual violence that were committed against representatives of the Ukrainian power structures. This is no excuse and these people, whatever characters they were before committing the crime, should bear full responsibility for their crimes,” – said Gerashchenko, adding that in this context, the more important and relevant is the ratification by the Verkhovna Rada of the Istanbul Convention.
As reported today in the Special monitoring mission of the OSCE stated about the sexual harassment by armed men in ORDO against women members of the patrol mission.
