When it comes to war human rights seem to be its first casualty. Already Hannah Arendt was sceptical about human rights because when human beings needed them most, no government or intergovernmental organization seems prepared to protect them. We witness this reality now in Ukraine when troops of the Russian Federation are violating human rights of Ukrainian citizens by design. Also it seems that the international community seems helpless or reluctant to support the Ukrainian government in protecting a minimum of human rights of citizens under attack. Still, have human rights in times of war something to teach us, even today? I discuss this question with Volodymyr Beglov, Chairman of the Board at the Educational Center of Human Rights in Lviv.
