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.

About 2014 Data
Reported figures include a number of cases of violation of equality (art. 161 of the Criminal Code), which may have included violence.
The UN Special Rapporteur on Minority Issues recommended that authorities ensure adequate protection of Roma communities and that any incidents of violence and intimidation be fully and speedily investigated and perpetrators prosecuted.
ODIHR observes that Ukraine has not reported on cases of hate crimes separately from cases of hate speech and/or discrimination.
