Today (20 March), Christoph Strässer, the Federal Government Commissioner for Human Rights Policy and Humanitarian Aid, met Josef Zissels, Chairman of the Association of Jewish Communities and Organisations of Ukraine, at the Federal Foreign Office.
The Federal Government Human Rights Commissioner issued the following statement:
Talking to the Chairman of the Association of Jewish Communities and Organisations of Ukraine, I gained first‑hand insights into developments on the ground.
On its way towards political stabilisation, Ukraine is facing major challenges. That’s why it is so important now for an inclusive government to adopt policies for all Ukrainians and all parts of the country.
This also means that the government must clearly dissociate itself from right‑wing nationalists and stand up for the protection of minorities.
