(MENAFN- UkrinForm) Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights Dmytro Lubinets discussed environmental threats posed by Russia's actions in Ukraine with Asako Okai, UN Assistant Secretary-General and Director of UNDP Crisis Bureau.

In addition, the settlements where the Kakhovka reservoir is a source of drinking water supply may be left without water due to the actions of the Russians," Lubinets said .

During the meeting, the Russians' violation of the right to proper living conditions and provoked problems in the field of business and children's rights were discussed. Lubinets also familiarized Okai and her delegation with the structure of the Commissioner's Office and outlined the scope of its activities.

"UN Assistant Secretary-General Asako Okai said that Ukraine would continue to receive help and support from the world," Lubinets emphasized.

As reported, Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights Dmytro Lubinets noted that the deportation of more than 16,000 Ukrainian children to the Russian Federation had been confirmed, while the actual number of deportees may reach hundreds of thousands.
