Ukraine-report, published by Amnesty International

Amnesty International published a report concerning Ukraine, pointing out the problematic conditions for refugees and other vulnerable migrants in Ukraine:

“There is no adequate and fair asylum procedure in Ukraine and its asylum system fails to comply with international law. Migrants, refuguees and asylum-seekers are subjected to a range of human rights violations.”

“Amnesty International is concerned about the limited access of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and asylum lawyers to the detainees in the “accommodation centres” in the airport, as well as the possible detention of vulnerable individuals, including minors. The organization is also concerned that asylum-seekers and migrants may not be able to challenge the lawfulness of their detention.”

“Ukraine has repeatedly forcibly returned asylum-seekers and even recognized refugees to countries where they were at risk of being subjected to grave human rights violations.”
