DECEMBER 10TH WORLD CELEBRATES INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS DAY
On this day, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. For the first time in history, it recorded the inalienable rights of every person, regardless of race, colour, gender, language, and religion. This document formed the fundamentals for international treaties and constitutions of most democratic countries of the world.
The provisions of the Declaration and basic human rights are still violated by some countries that can call their system “democracy”, but have imperial ambitions and see people only as a resource, but Ukraine, unlike them, is confidently moving towards its rigorous implementation.
The All-Ukrainian Law Week, which is held annually on the week of December 10, has started in Ukraine. The purpose of its events is to tell Ukrainian citizens about their rights and freedoms and how to protect them.
The Ministry for Veterans Affairs is working and will continue to work to protect the rights of veterans, living and fallen, their families and citizens of Ukraine who were forced to leave their homes due to the aggression of the Russian Federation, as well as those who are forced to live in conditions of temporary occupation by the Russian Federation, where the fundamental human rights and freedoms in relation to the local population are violated every day - both in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, and in some areas of Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts in the East of Ukraine.
Our team congratulate with the holiday and pledges to make every effort so that all citizens of Ukraine this day feel it to be truly a holiday of confidence in the protection and inviolability of their rights and freedoms.
