Ukraine regularly submits data on hate crimes to ODIHR. In 2019, the National Police of Ukraine and the Ministry of Internal Affairs worked with ODIHR to publish an information booklet on Categorizing and Investigating Hate Crimes in Ukraine: A Practical Guide. Ukraine's National Human Rights Strategy includes an objective to "create a system for preventing, combatting, documenting and investigating hate crimes". In 2020, a working group co-ordinated by the Human Rights Commissioner of the Ukrainian Parliament was created to improve hate crime recording procedures.

Hate crime recorded by police
Incidents reported by civil society, international organizations and the Holy See
Racist and xenophobic hate crime
UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) recommended that Ukraine re-activate its working group on xenophobia and ethnic and racial intolerance, as well as systems for investigating and combating ethnic crimes; effectively investigate reported hate crimes and ensure that police refrain from racial profiling; prosecute and punish hate crimes; and expand human rights training for law-enforcement authorities.
Racist and xenophobic hate crime, Anti-Roma hate crime
The European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) recommended that Ukraine ensure that racist offences are consistently reported and recorded in the criminal justice system as a means to improve tracking of cases across the criminal justice system; intensify its efforts to combat bias-motivated violence through effective punishment; and deliver training for all criminal justice system agencies on implementing criminal provisions. In its adopted reports for 2011, ECRI noted cases of violence against Roma in Ukraine.
