Not at all. As I understand it, there's nothing in the UHDR that says (a) rehabilitation is a possibility or necessity or (b) people can't be punished. It just puts limits on the power of the state, for the reasons stated above.

And anyway, the USSR didn't sign up to the UHDR. Stalin was all in favour of mass executions of the German officers. So it's nice that unrestrained execution has friends across the political spectrum, from Communists to Nazis. Churchill said something like he'd rather be hanged himself than ratify such a bloodbath.
