Ukraine regularly submits information on hate crimes to ODIHR. Ukraine's hate crime laws combine general and specific penalty enhancement provisions and contain a substantive offence. Hate crime data are collected by the General Prosecutor's Office, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the State Department on Sentence Execution and the State Statistics Committee.
ODIHR's publication Categorizing and Investigating Hate Crimes in Ukraine: A Practical Guide was published in May 2019. The Guide aims to assist prosecutors overseeing the investigation process, and complements the efforts of the National Police Main Investigation Department and the Human Rights Department, which launched a detailed Methodological Recommendation on Investigating Hate Crimes in 2017.
The United Nations Independent Expert on protection against violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity published relevant recommendations in his "Report on the visit to Ukraine."
The European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) published relevant recommendations in its "Conclusions on the Implementation of the Recommendations in Respect of Ukraine."
ODIHR observes that Ukraine has not reported on cases of hate crimes separately from cases of hate speech or discrimination.
