The Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD) Calls for the Support, Protection and Safety of Ukrainians with Disabilities

The needs of Ukrainians with disabilities must not be ignored. Ukraine ratified the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) in 2010. CRPD Article 11 specifically addresses situations of risk and humanitarian emergencies and the protection obligations that exist in the context of armed conflict. UN Security Council Resolution 2475, unanimously adopted in 2019, also calls upon member states to "protect persons with disabilities in conflict situations and to ensure they have access to justice, basic services and unimpeded humanitarian assistance." These international humanitarian and human rights laws must be respected. AUCD strongly supports humanitarian efforts focused on the needs of people with disabilities and their families in Ukraine.
