Rada ratifies protocol on children rightsThe Verkhovna Rada has ratified the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on a communications procedure, while introducing a restriction with regard to the occupied territories.

Therefore, Ukraine doesn't guarantee the fulfillment of its obligations under the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the territories uncontrolled by Kyiv.

Ukraine signed the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on a communications procedure on November 20, 2014 in New York.

This protocol allows children and their representatives to bring individual complaints directly to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child. These claims may concern violations of child’s rights foreseen by the corresponding Convention and its optional protocols by the state-signatory of the Protocol.
