“According to various estimates, between 150,000 and 400,000 Roma people live in Ukraine. The Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights congratulates the Roma community on the significant event – the 50th anniversary of the International Romani Day,” the Office of the Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights posted on Telegram.

It is specified that the protection of the Roma national minority, the promotion of their rights on an equal footing with other citizens of Ukraine, their social, economic and cultural integration is one of the important areas of public policy.

As Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights Liudmyla Denisova stressed, according to Article 11 of the Constitution of Ukraine, the state is obliged to promote the development of ethnic, cultural, linguistic and religious identity of all indigenous peoples and national minorities of Ukraine.

In particular, the Ukrainian Ombudsperson emphasized the need for the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine to approve the strategy for prevention of all forms of discrimination against the Roma national minority and for integration of its representatives into Ukrainian society until 2030.

Denisova also thanked Roma NGOs and activists for their significant contribution to a common activity united by a common goal – the protection of human rights.
