UN Mission to Ukraine releases report on sexual violence

The United Nations Human Rights Mission to Ukraine released its report on the impunity in widespread sexual violence in Ukraine, committed in the context of armed conflict. The report documents cases of conflict-related sexual violence committed against both men and women who were detained by either Government forces or armed groups. The report states that sexual violence is severely under-reported, and medical and state institutions lack the knowledge and skills to provide assistance to survivors of sexual abuse.
