OHCHR welcomes this development and urges the authorities to conduct the investigation in good faith and take measures to remove personal data from the website," the report says.

As UNIAN reported earlier, volunteers of the Myrotvorets website launched a system of automatic recognition of persons who encroached on the independence and territorial integrity of Ukraine.
