On the occasion of a post on social networks where the video is seen as young
an unnamed Ukrainian verbally and physically attacks them and strikes them with a plastic phallus four Roma women, for alleged theft, International Roma Union Union IRU sent
a written response to the EU, EC and other relevant European institutions as well as to the Embassy of Ukraine in RS Macedonia by its President Zoran Dimov, as stated in the reaction to the Ukrainian authorities to take action to resolve this incident and eradicate violence and discrimination against the Roma community. It says, among other things:
International Roma Union - IRU is a worldwide organization that aims to protect and promote the basic human rights of Roma around the world. In this context, on behalf of the Roma nation around the world, we call on the Ukrainian government and authorities to URGENTLY take the necessary measures to punish and eradicate violence and discrimination against Roma, as evidenced by the recent incident of violence and humiliation of Roma women in Ukraine.
The International Roma Union - IRU proposes that the Republic of Ukraine join - as a new active member of the UN - the 5-year UN campaign for equality of generations, which promotes the rights of women and girls globally. We consider it important to develop an action program against gender-based violence in Ukraine.
Otherwise, the reaction specifically refers to the video already posted on the social network FB exactly when at the same time the UN Day is celebrated on 24.10.2021 at 15:05, where a man attacks four Romani women in the center of Kiev. The violent man violently and humiliating the four women, hits them on the head, kicks and insults them. To make such an event more visible and completely blacken Roma women, the perpetrator brutally uses a dildo as a weapon for violence against women. In the video you can see how beaten and humiliated women are powerless defending themselves and trying to get away from the abuser in order to save themselves, and he persistently insults and continues the physical violence on the move.
