The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Volker Türk, embarked on a four-day visit to Ukraine on Sunday (4 December), arriving there at the invitation of the Ukrainian government.
Türk will be making stops in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Izyum and Uzhhorod to meet with both national and regional government officials and civil society, as well as the families of missing civilians and captured soldiers, among others.
Türk will hold a news conference in Kyiv at the end of his mission, on Wednesday (7 December) at around 13:00 hours local time.
Last week, Türk expressed his concern over the missile attacks in Ukraine, which have resulted in millions of people living in inadequate conditions without electricity, water, or heat. European officials are now scrambling to help Ukraine stay warm and keep functioning through the bitter winter months.
