ENNHRI convenes meeting between the Human Rights Commissioners of Ukraine and the Russian Federation

On the occasion of its 2022 General Assembly meeting in Brussels, ENNHRI organised a meeting between the Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights, Dmytro Lubinets, and the Commissioner for Human Rights of the Russian Federation, Tatyana Moskalkova. They met in order to explore ways to work together on human rights and humanitarian issues arising in their states.

In accordance with their mandates, Commissioner Moskalkova and Commissioner Lubinets agreed to cooperate on human rights for people in both Ukraine and the Russian Federation. This includes the exchange of information on missing individuals, efforts to ensure communications of detained individuals with their families, and arrangements for reunification for children separated from their parents.

Through such meetings, ENNHRI gives both Heads of Ukrainian and Russian National Human Rights Institutions, who are members of the network, the possibility to communicate in person and develop an approach for cooperation on human rights challenges arising.
