Allegations of arbitrary detentions, torture and enforced disappearance have been made against all sides in the conflict in eastern Ukraine. We have called publicly for all sides to ensure that any such violations and abuses cease. We welcome the actions taken so far by the Ukrainian government in bringing to justice perpetrators of conflict-related human rights abuses, but there is still much more to do. We remain very concerned about the lack of accountability and access for human rights bodies to separatist-controlled territories.
