The Nobel Peace Prize 2018 laureate, Yazidi human rights activist Nadia Murad came to Ukraine for the first time at the invitation of Olena Zelenska. This was reported by the press service of the President of Ukraine.

The first lady and her guest visited the urban settlement of Borodianka in the Kiev region, which was under Russian occupation from February 26 to April 1, 2022.

Olena Zelenska and Nadia Murad saw destroyed apartment buildings and visited pre-school educational institutions where local residents hid from air raids. Zelenska and Murad watched employees of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine conduct mine safety training with children.

During talks with Prosecutor General Andriy Kostin, Olena Zelenska said Murad's Code is used during a conversation with victims of sexual abuse.

"It provides an answer on how to build trust with and support people who have experienced this deep trauma. For some prosecutors and law enforcement, it is your name that has become synonymous with humanity and ethics", the first lady told the Yazidi human rights activist.

Nadia Murad is an Iraqi Yazidi human rights activist, goodwill ambassador for the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, winner of the Andrei Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought, and a 2018 Nobel Peace Prize winner. She survived slavery, violence, and torture after the capture of her native village of Kocho in Iraq by the terrorist group ISIS. Since 2020, she has worked with the Institute for International Criminal Investigations (IICI) and the United Kingdom government's Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict Initiative (PSVI). Created the "Murad Code", which highlights minimum standards for the safe, effective and moral collection and use of information obtained from a victim or survivor of systemic sexual violence.
