In an interview with the Dzerkalo Tyzhnia, the UN
official said that in matters related to HIV/AIDS in Ukraine, drug
users, homosexual men, as well as representatives of the sex industry
fall victims to discrimination.

In particular, he said, there were attempts by law enforcement
agencies to control the distribution of substitution therapy drug, and
to criminalize the use of these drugs. “But in this case, drug addicts
will go into the shadows, and we will lose access to them. Yet, the
number of people who need substitution therapy is very large,” Adam
said.

In addition, the UN is alarmed by three bills submitted to the
Verkhovna Rada proposing a ban the advocacy of homosexuality. “We
believe that this violates human rights,” he stressed.
