On 5 March 2014, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon announced that he was dispatching Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights Ivan Šimonovic to Ukraine to monitor the human rights situation in the country.
Two years of violence, shelling and fear have left an indelible mark on thousands of people in eastern Ukraine. As the conflict continues, we need to reach these people urgently. We appeal to all parties of the conflict to facilitate full and unimpeded humanitarian access to people in need across the country.
