Russia’s invasion of Ukraine triggers most massive violations of human rights
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has triggered “the most massive violations of human rights we are living [through] today,” United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres said on Feb. 27, 2023.
“It has unleashed widespread death, destruction and displacement,” Guterres continued.
“The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights has documented dozens of cases of conflict-related sexual violence against men, women and girls,” he added.
Guterres spoke at the UN Human Rights Council’s meeting commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Geneva. He called on international governments to respect and revitalize the declaration, which he said is often “misused and abused.”
