On 10 December, the Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights (Ombudsperson), Lyudmyla Denisova, and the EU Advisory Mission (EUAM) in Ukraine signed a new working arrangement.
This arrangement will consolidate their efforts to protect and promote human rights in Ukraine under various perspectives.
According to an EUAM press release, the principles of equality and non-discrimination are central in the bilateral cooperation and future project with the office of the Commissioner.
“They include addressing and finding solutions for deep-rooted forms of discrimination that have affected the most vulnerable people in societies, including women and girls, national minorities, people of African descent, LGBTI people, migrants and people with disabilities, among others. They are also at the heart of human rights, and among the core access criteria for EU membership,” the press release said.
