Our Association continues its participation in UN human rights and monitoring activities and in this framework we activated our efforts on issue of co-operation with UN Independent Expert on debt, other international financial obligations and human rights, Professor Attiya Waris, reporting on challenges that are caused by illegal digital systems, that Russia criminally established on the occupied territories of Ukraine with relevant negative influence on international financial relations and human rights.

As we pointed to Independent Expert, since March 2022 Russia made systematic illegal steps to prepare crime of attempted annexation the territories of Donetsk, Kherson, Luhansk and Zaporizhzhya regions of Ukraine. Russian criminal “administrations” in those areas pursues illegal tasks that are mostly related to the suppression of pro-Ukrainian resistance and the involvement of the relevant districts in the so-called “ruble zone” and “Russian informational space”.

As Ukrainian self-government, governmental agencies and bank institutions refused to co-operate with the Russian invaders in their illegal activities, Russia transfer illegally the own “bank institutions” to those occupied territories with direct target to undermine the Ukraine’s sovereignty in those areas in digital and financial framework.

ARC pointed in its submission that illegal activities of the so-called “International Settlement Bank” and “Promsvyazbank” in the Russia-occupied Crimea, Donetsk, Kherson, Luhansk and Zaporizhzhya regions also violate brutally the rights of Ukrainian citizens and legal persons to respect for private and family life, property and correspondence, to receive and impart information – as all data, illegally collected by this “banks” on-line, is available for Russian militaries and special services.

This ARC’s submission, worked out by Dr. Borys Babin and other Association’s activists, was taken into account by UN Independent Expert preparing her Report to UN General Assembly and it was published on UN web-sources.
