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.
