Verkhovna Rada dismisses ombudswoman for Human Rights due to absenteeism and false rape allegations. She went AWOL when humanitarian corridors were needed in Mariupol and the Luhansk and Donetsk regions. Furthermore she failed to fulfill her task in prisoner exchange.
The Verkhovna Rada voted to dismiss Lyudmila Denisova from the post of human rights ombudsman
The People's Deputy Yaroslav Zheleznyak reported about it in Telegram, informs UNN.
Yes there are atrocities and war crimes, however an Human Rights ombudswoman more involved in disinformation than facts and evidence should be rightly dismissed.

UK Disinformation and Propaganda The Consortium
Britain was busy expanding and modernising its propaganda apparatus for the digital age. These efforts culminated in the establishment in early 2015 of two new info-war outfits: the 77th Brigade, an official regular and Army Reserve unit specialising in cyber warfare; and the "Integrity Initiative" of the Institute for Statecraft (IfS).

Accounts of alleged sexual violence coming out of Ukraine in recent weeks have been grim. A woman raped repeatedly by a Russian soldier after her husband was killed outside Kyiv. A mother of four gang raped by Russian soldiers in Kherson. The body of a Ukrainian woman found dead -- naked and branded with a swastika. A woman raped by a Russian commander on the day tanks entered the village of Kalyta.

Mounting allegations of sexual violence in Ukraine
Numbers are impossible to calculate, but evidence is growing that Russian soldiers are using rape as a weapon of war in Ukraine. In areas retaken from Russian troops, civilians are giving horrifying accounts of sexual violence. The International Court has opened investigations into more than 400 cases, but these will not be the only ones. DW's Rebecca Ritters went to Bucha on the outskirts of Kyiv, a place already notorious for Russian soldiers killing civilians. There she found the story of one young woman whose parents have been left in horrendous uncertainty.

❗️The Verkhovna Rada fires Human Rights Ombudsman Lyudmila Denisova / Latest News
People's Deputy Zheleznyak announced the dismissal of Lyudmila Denisova from the post of human rights ombudsman. 234 deputies voted in favor. There is currently no new candidate for the post.
UPD: Ex-ombudsman Lyudmila Denisova has stated that she will appeal her dismissal in court today. She wrote about this on her Facebook page. Denisova believes that she was fired in violation of the Constitution.
As people's deputy Pavel Frolov wrote, there are several reasons for dismissal:
After February 24, she spent a lot of time abroad.
We are talking about Denisova's numerous statements, in particular about the "rape of children in Bucha", "the rape of a baby with a spoon" or other similar cases without names and evidence - in order to understand what so outraged the representatives of the ruling party (editor's note).

Former President Petro Poroshenko's European Solidarity party and former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko's Batkivshchyna (Fatherland) party voted against her dismissal.
The chairwoman of the ZMINA Human Rights Center, Tetyana Pechonchyk, said there were no constitutional grounds to remove Denisova from the post.
No mention of her false allegations and disinformation .... natural policy for an American propaganda outlet.
