National developments

The National Police adopted an Action Plan to prevent hate crimes for 2019. As part of the plan, hate crime monitoring groups have been created in police units.

The Human Rights Department and the Main Investigation Department of the National Police have worked with ODIHR to transform the internal Methodological Recommendations on Investigating Hate Crimes, launched in 2017, into a publication on Categorizing and Investigating Hate Crimes in Ukraine: A Practical Guide, launched in 2019, which is now to be translated into operational practice of the police and subsequent trainings for police officers.

ODIHR Recommendations 

ODIHR observes that Ukraine has not reported on cases of hate crimes separately from cases of hate speech or discrimination.
