Prosecutor General Iryna Venediktova stated that ex-Commissioner Lyudmila Denisova did not provide her with any information on rape cases which she reported on social media. Instead, the Commissioner was sending emails.

Venediktova said this in a comment to Babel.

“Ms. Denisova does not submit information. She writes us letters about such and such conventions: Please, study these conventions. She sends us letters, not information. These are different things. Of course, we take note of her information," Venediktova said.

She noted that crimes committed during the course of war are considered war crimes and have no statute of limitations.

As IMI reported, on May 31, the Verkhovna Rada dismissed Lyudmila Denisova from the position of the Parliamentary Commissioner for Human Rights.

On May 31, over 30 human rights organizations called on the Verkhovna Rada to stop politicizing and trying to destroy the independence of the Ombudsman's institution and to create conditions for an independent competition for this position in compliance with all international standards.

On May 25, 2022, female Ukrainian media workers called on the Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for Human Rights Lyudmila Denisova to abstain from excessively detailed descriptions of sexual crimes during the war, as well as to verify and carefully consider every word to avoid sensationalism in the reports.
