CPT Report - Ukraine

The latest CPT, (or Council of Europe European Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhumane or Degrading  Treatment or Punishment) has just been released relating to Ukraine.

Just as grim a read as it was in 2009.

It seems there have been no improvements under this government compared to the last one.

One wonders if there will be any improvement in the 2015 report which should see the results of the implementation of the new Criminal Procedures Code which comes into force now.

We will see - but I am not convinced there will be any major changes noted 3 years from now.
