• Once more power gap has proven to bring ineluctable serious problems. Only when Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights publishes report, some hard truths come to light. “Practice of arbitrary detention, torture and the ill-treatment of conflict-related detainees in eastern Ukraine” is the heart of the matter.
  • Considering a limited access to the region by international organizations and institutions in the so-called ‘Luhansk People’s Republic’ and ‘Donetsk People’s Republic’, the peril of situation -if the full and unconditional access to whole area is granted- seems to be pathetic and in the long term possible cases of “crimes against humanity” may come to the fore. It appears vital that Russia should exert its influence in the region to prevent these violations, which may accumber itself in the future.
