Ukraine: Authorities fail to protect participants of Transgender Day of Remembrance rally from far-right attacks

, Index number: EUR 50/9436/2018

The Ukrainian authorities failed to ensure the right to freedom of peaceful assembly when far-right groups disrupted and attacked participants of the Transgender Day of Remembrance rally planned in the capital Kyiv ahead of the International Transgender Day of Remembrance. The authorities must ensure that all those responsible for the violence are identified and brought to justice in fair trial proceedings, and also put an end to the persistent issue of impunity for members of political groups who advocate hatred and discrimination and perpetrate violence against vulnerable minorities in Ukraine.
