UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine is unable to visit prisons in the occupied areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions in eastern Ukraine and demands that such access must be provided as soon as possible.

"In the territory of self-proclaimed republics, we are not allowed to visit prisoners and detention centers. International organizations must have unimpeded access to such places and this must happen as soon as possible,” Ms Matilda Bogner, the Head of the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine, said during the presentation of a new human rights report which covers six months of monitoring from February 16 to July 31, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

Head of the President's Office Andriy Yermak earlier said that the International Committee of the Red Cross was expected to get access to the temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions by the end of September.
