Ukraine’s Pravda said the Verkhovna Rada wants a vote of no-confidence against Human Rights Ombudsman Lyudmila Denisova, citing the statement of the same spokeswoman. According to the portal, the reason is Denisova’s rhetoric regarding sexual crimes committed by Russians in Ukraine.
Ukraine’s Pravda website announced on Monday that the Verkhovna Rada wants to express its distrust of human rights spokeswoman Lyudmila Denisova at her meeting on Tuesday. The portal cited several sources. One of them is the statement by Denisova herself from Monday’s press conference.
The spokeswoman said: – I have just learned, on the orders of the President, that a vote of no-confidence against me as a Human Rights Spokesperson is scheduled for the High Council tomorrow. According to her, this decision was allegedly made during a meeting with President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Media: The reason is talk about sexual crimes committed by the Russians
Another source on which the portal relied in its report was a Facebook entry by Titiana Pichonczyk, president of the organization “ZMINA. Center for Human Rights”, who wrote that the writer’s dismissal was planned. Peczonczyk assessed that there were no constitutional grounds for removing Denisova. She also wrote that there are many objections to her job, but that this is not the time to change her position.
This information was also confirmed by two sources of the Ukrainian Truth portal of the People’s Servant Party.
Ludmila Denisova has been Ukraine’s Ombudsman since 2018. According to the Ukrainian newspaper Pravda, the reason for Denisova’s dismissal was her speech in connection with the sexual crimes he committed Russians in Ukraine.
Journalists and doctors protested in an open letter against the strict method of communicating such information.
