​The UK raised the treatment of members of the Roma community during Ukraine's Universal Periodic Review at the United Nations in November 2017. In their response, Ukraine noted that it was implementing the 2013-20 Strategy for the Protection and Integration of the Roma National Minority into Ukrainian Society, including efforts to improve the documentation of the Roma population and school attendance of Roma children. The UK continues to engage with the Ukrainian authorities and non-governmental organisations on this issue.
