CTRC’s mission

The Crimean Tatar Resource Center is a non-governmental organization working at local, national and international levels aimed at non-violent de-occupation, reintegration and sustainable development of Crimea, by protecting human rights, realizing the collective rights of indigenous peoples in their historical homeland, monitoring and analyzing the components of sustainable development of Crimea, supporting cultural, ecological, scientific initiatives, information and educational activities.

CTRC’s vision

The activity of the Crimean Tatar Resource Center became a component of the de-occupation of Crimea. The result of the work of the Crimean Tatar Resource Center contributed to the peaceful coexistence of representatives of different ethnic groups and religions,  the protection of the indigenous and human rights, the sustainable development of Crimea in Ukraine and strengthening of democratic institutions in it. The activity of the Crimean Tatar Resource Center has led to an objective perception of the Crimean issue at the global and European levels.

The uncertainty of the moment of de-occupation led to a detailed vision for two states: before and after de-occupation. Each of them is presented in a separate section of the Strategy.

The main goal by 2023 is:

To prevent the completion of the attempt to annex Crimea by raising the issue of its occupation at the national and international levels and attracting more partners and supporters for joint activities.

Special objectives:

1. Promoting the protection and realization of human rights.
2. Promoting the protection and realization of the rights of indigenous peoples.
3. Promoting the protection of the environment of Crimea.
4. Promoting self-organization of the population of Crimea.
5. Promoting the activities aimed at the de-occupation and preparation for the reintegration of Crimea.
