Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) people in Ukraine continue to face discrimination, and many are targeted for violence and abuse by public officials and members of the public. If the government of Ukraine is to succeed in its ambition to achieve association and visa liberalisation with the European Union, it must ensure that its legislation is in line with European human rights standards and must implement international and regional human rights agreements, including upholding the principle of non-discrimination.
