People living in homelessness face a high risk of contracting COVID-19, and are disproportionally affected by COVID-19 response measures. OHCHR/HRMMU’s monitoring of the human rights situation of homeless men and women indicates that their access to healthcare services has been further limited due to the pandemic. Often, they do not have access to COVID-19 testing and treatment and are not provided with face masks and sanitiser. Because of the quarantine, persons living in homelessness have lost their already limited access to shelter, food, water, hygiene and sources of income.

2 мая 2020 г. отмечается шестая годовщина насилия в Одессе, которое привело к гибели 40 мужчин, 7 женщин и 1 несовершеннолетнего. Последние шесть лет семьи погибших боролись за справедливость в делах своих близких. Однако справедливость остается призрачной: некоторые дела застряли на этапе расследования, другие – на этапе судебного рассмотрения. Никто не был признан виновным ни за одну из 48 смертей. Прилагаемая инфографика показывает прогресс в незавершенных судебных производствах.

2 May 2020 marks the sixth anniversary of the violence in Odesa that claimed the lives of 40 men, 7 women and 1 boy.

Justice, however, has remained elusive: in some cases, proceedings have stalled at the pre-trial investigation stage, in others at the trial stage. No individual has been held accountable for any of the 48 deaths. The enclosed infographic illustrates the progress in ongoing trials.

The following Emergency Response Plan for the COVID-19 pandemic seeks to set out activities that will be undertaken by humanitarian actors in Ukraine over the course of 2020 to respond to the public health impact of the epidemic – as well as the indirect, socio-economic impact on people’s well-being, which will span across many areas. Given the extensive public exposure of the COVID-19 threat, the response will cover the whole of Ukraine, while providing a distinct focus on Donetska and Luhanska oblasts that have been ravaged by an armed conflict for the last six consecutive years. The planned COVID-19 response in the two conflict-affected oblasts will be treated as an annex to the current Humanitarian Response Plan for Ukraine.
