‘Victim-centred approach’ needed in Ukraine when war ends: Top UN rights investigator
A lot of work is required now on the part of UN and other humanitarians to ease suffering in Ukraine during the on-going Russian invasion, but even more will be needed to help heal trauma once the fighting stops, said the Chair of the UN Human Rights Council-mandated Commission of Inquiry on Monday.
Erik Møse said in an interview with UN News, a victim-centred approach was crucial and psychosocial support should be prioritized.
The independent investigator was speaking just hours after briefing the Council in Geneva on the continuing alleged war crimes being committed by Russian forces in areas where his team can gain access.
He told Nana Karikari that accountability for potential war crimes would be best served if there is better coordination and efficiency between the different human rights investigations taking place on the local and international level.
