The Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) asks the international community to strengthen its protection of the human rights of the residents in the conflict zone in the east of Ukraine.

UWC President Eugene Czolij stated this, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“The Ukrainian World Congress condemns the continuing violations of the Minsk agreements, particularly the barbaric targeting by Russian Federation-backed terrorist forces of innocent civilians, and urges the international community to actively protect the fundamental human rights of the residents in the conflict zone,” Czolij said. 

The Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) urged a tougher response by the international community to the most recent escalation of military aggression by Russian Federation-backed forces in Eastern Ukraine including the attack on December 18, 2017 on the village of Novoluhanske.

The shelling of the populated residential area resulted in eight civilian injuries, including a 6-year-old girl, and extensive damage to the local infrastructure.
