In March 2014, at the invitation of the Government of Ukraine and in response to developments in the country, the UN Secretary-General deployed a human rights team.

The UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine monitors, reports publicly and advocates on the human rights situation in Ukraine with the aim of fostering access to justice and bringing perpetrators to account. A special focus is on the east and Crimea.

The Human Rights Mission has offices in Kyiv, Donetsk, Kharkiv, Kramatorsk, Luhansk, Odesa. The Mission works on Crimea from the offices in Kyiv and Odesa.

The UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission implements the mandate of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to protect and promote human rights for all everywhere. The headquarters is in Geneva.

By the end of 2017, the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine has published 22 public reports on the human rights situation in Ukrain2, and two thematic reports: on conflict-related sexual violence and on the human rights situation in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea.
