Lawyers of the Crimean Tatar Resource Center collect information on human rights violations and war crimes in the occupied territories, as well as testimonies of IDPs and refugees using a questionnaire previously developed by the CTRC.
Since 2014, the Crimean Tatar Resource Center has been collecting and documenting human rights violations in the occupied Crimea, and since the beginning of the full-scale war of the Russian Federation in Ukraine, we have continued this activity in the new occupied territories.
For the entire period of their work, the experts of the Crimean Tatar Resource Center submitted 93 applications, complaints, reports to international human rights organizations and their structures:
– ECHR (25 applications);
– UN Special Rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples (7 papers);
– EMRIP (6 documents);
– UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (6 documents);
– UN special procedures (20 documents);
– Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (2 documents);
– UN Human Rights Committee (2 applications);
– Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (1 report);
– European Committee against Torture or Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (7 complaints);
– HDIM, OSCE (16 reports);
– other OSCE bodies (1 document).
The CTRC team systematically delivers reports at various international and Ukrainian platforms, and also quarterly reports on the situation with human rights violations in the occupied Crimea.
Currently, the CTRC is collecting materials on human rights violations and war crimes committed by the Russian military against Ukrainian citizens on the territory of Ukraine, including the indigenous peoples of Ukraine, in order to submit applications to the UN CU, the ISS, the ECHR and the CU of indigenous peoples. For this purpose, the lawyers of the CTRC created a special questionnaire for victims of the Russian aggression in Ukraine.
We ask all victims to fill out the questionnaire of the Crimean Tatar Resource Center (follow the link and download the document) and send it by mail:
The CTRC notes the importance of documenting the crimes of the Russian Federation, because in the future this will form the evidence base for further trials at the national and international levels.
