The OHCHR also said it was “highly concerned” about the “enormous risks” posed by hostilities near or in nuclear power plants, and called for immediate steps to demilitarise the Zaporizhzia nuclear power station occupied by Russian forces.

Kyiv and Moscow

Kyiv and Moscow did not immediately comment on the report, carried out between Feb. 1 and July 31 and based on work of the United Nations Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine.

Both sides have denied allegations of human rights abuses.

Russian Federation

“The ongoing armed attack by the Russian Federation against Ukraine and associated hostilities had resulted in a dire human rights situation across the country.

“The armed conflict has led to a wide range of human rights violations affecting both civilians and combatants,” it said.

The OHCHR said it was continuing to document and verify allegations of unlawful killings of hundreds of civilians by Russian armed forces in the Kyiv, Sumy, and Kharkiv regions.

It said it had also documented at least six killings of civilians perceived as traitors for alleged collaboration with Russia in occupied areas.

The OHCHR said it had documented violations by both sides of human rights laws and international law on the treatment of prisoners of war and non-combatants.

It said the alleged violations included extrajudicial executions, torture, ill-treatment, sexual violence, ignoring fair trial guarantees, denial of medical assistance, lack of food and water, and poor sanitation.

“Some of these violations may amount to war crimes,” it said.
