When the war in Ukraine is over, a “victim-centered approach” is required: leading UN rights expert

Even more effort will be required to aid in the healing of trauma once the combat ceases, according to the Chair of the UN Human Rights Council-mandated Commission of Inquiry, who stated on Monday that much work remains to be done by the UN and other humanitarians to lessen suffering in Ukraine amid the ongoing Russian invasion.

Erik Mse stated that a victim-centered approach was essential and that psychosocial treatment should be given top priority.

Just hours prior, the independent investigator had briefed the Council in Geneva on the alleged ongoing war crimes being committed by Russian forces in regions to which his team has access.

He explained to Nana Karikari that greater cooperation and efficiency between the various human rights investigations going on both locally and internationally would be beneficial for ensuring accountability for alleged war crimes.
