At the same time, the official says, mobile police teams dealing with cases of domestic violence have been set up in all large cities across Ukraine.

"Mobile teams to combat cases of domestic violence are operating in all regional centers, as well as towns such as Bila Tserkva, Kramatorsk and Berdyansk. And today they are already proving their effectiveness. We're now considering increasing the number of such mobile teams. At the same time, the National Police are intensifying work of all units involved in tackling domestic violence," she said.

Pavlichenko also stresses due attention being given to measures to prevent cases of domestic violence.

As UNIAN reported earlier, in September 2019, the police created mobile groups to combat domestic violence.

In 2020, it is planned to create such mobile patrols in all cities with populations over 50,000.

In addition, a hotline will be launched in Ukraine for victims of human trafficking, domestic violence, gender-based violence, violence against children, or those facing a threat of such violence.
