The Russian aggression led to the establishment of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (“LNR”) and Donetsk People’s Republic (“DNR”). The quasi-states of LNR and DNR have already created their quasi-regulatory frameworks. What continues to be an important task is further information search and documentation of extraordinary human rights violations which took place in the years 2014-2015 (arbitrary executions, enforced disappearances, torture, unlawful imprisonment and detention, etc.).
