The main objective of the visit was to review the measures taken by the Ukrainian authorities in response to the recommendations made by the CPT after previous visits. In particular, attention was paid to the treatment and conditions of detention of persons in police custody and prisoners. The delegation also examined the treatment, conditions and legal safeguards offered to psychiatric patients, residents of social care institutions (“Internats”), as well as immigration detainees.
The main conclusions of the CPT are set out in the Executive Summary of the report.
The CPT’s report has been made public under an automatic publication procedure introduced by the Ukrainian authorities in 2014.
