Russian occupation caused sheer outburst of sexual offences and violence. How to end?

( Information Department of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Secretariat )

Widespread sexual abuses throughout the occupied territories needful of extensive publicity internationally were in the scope of the meeting Iryna Herashchenko, the First Deputy Chairperson of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine had with Ambassador Melanne Verveer, Special Representative of the OSCE Chairmanship-in-Office on Gender. Iryna Herashchenko expressed her sincere gratitude to the OSCE’s representative for the fruitful cooperation and standing support to Ukraine in launching of gender equality in the socio-political life.

Such OSCE’s gender events as now seem to be of utter relevance, since the new ideas and gears for establishing of gender equality are made available.

‘The second OSCE Gender Equality Review Conference in Vienna has given a firm foothold to a reasonable search for the new tools to fulfill the equal gender commitments, and those under the 2004 Action Plan for the Promotion of Gender Equality in particular,’ said I.Herashchenko.

The peacekeeping processes nowadays still become more and more challenging for women to take part into, subject to opposing the new geopolitical menaces. Making a review to Melanne Verveer, Special Representative of the OSCE Chairmanship-in-Office on Gender, about the state of affairs in Ukraine the politician gave her some self-speaking figures of female presence in the military, handful of which proved to be beyond the NATO and EU standards.
