MONITORING

In 2018, the trends in systematic violations of politicaland civil rights and freedoms persisted in Ukraine. Against the background of the military conflict in the East of the country, measures to limit rights were justified by the political leadership of the state by referring to the need to combat Russian aggression and separatism within the state. In fact, this restriction was aimed primarily at the political opponents of the current government, as well as organizations and social groups that broadcast alternative views and values in relation to the current government. According to the results of monitoring in 2018, the "Uspishna Varta" human rights platform recorded 197 cases of violations of political and civil rights and freedoms.
