After months of the political crisis in Ukraine accompanied by violent confrontation between the state and the opposition law-enforcement agencies in several regions almost stopped their activity. Due to this fact mass grave and especially grave crimes against person including assault and battery, torture, rape, and threats of killing take place. These crimes have both criminal and political motivation. Many of them are not only unsuppressed by inactive law-enforcement agencies, but also left unregistered in a due course of law. Members of the law-enforcement agencies also often become victims of assault and battery and are threatened by the criminals. Victims can only hope that the crimes against them will be thoroughly and justly investigated, though there is just a small possibility of it.
As we are absolutely sure, that a human being and his or her rights and freedoms are the greatest values in the modern democratic society, that it is important to achieve justice for the victims of the crimes and that taking into consideration the supremacy of law, we, citizens of Ukraine, the European Union and the Russian Federation, declare the creation of the public international Group of the Information about Crimes against Person. The Group will be responsible for gathering the information about the grave and especially grave crimes against person committed in Ukraine from February 22, 2014 and sharing it with the people in Ukraine, the European Union and the Russia Federation. After the law-enforcement system in Ukraine starts working again, we will seek after the investigation of all the crimes fixed by the Group in a due course of law of Ukraine.
