On the Death of Kateryna Handziuk

As delivered by Acting Deputy Chief of Mission Gregory Macris
to the Permanent Council, Vienna
November 8, 2018

The United States offers its condolences to the family and friends of Kateryna Handziuk.

Attacks on Ukraine’s civil society must stop, and those responsible for ordering this horrific attack must be brought to justice.

My government is encouraged by the report of the Ukrainian Permanent Representative regarding steps his government is taking, and looks forward to being kept abreast in this Council of future developments in this case.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
