Ukraine included in list of countries safeguarding their citizens human rights
The Swiss Government has included Ukraine in its list of states which guarantee observance of their citizens human rights.
What this means in practical terms is that from 1 January next year the Swiss authorities will no longer consider applications for political asylum from Ukrainian nationals since they face no threat in their own country. There would in particular cases, however, be exceptions.
As well as Ukraine, Moldova has been added to the list, however this does not include the Trans-Dniester Region.
