Eskender Bariiev: First anniversary since the release of Crimean Declaration. What it means and what to expect?
July 25, 2019 marks the year since the adoption of the “Crimean Declaration” by the US State Department. What impact does this declaration have? What should be expected? What is the de-occupation of Crimea from today's perspective? What should be done for Crimea and its de-occupation? Who can help us? How should we involve like-minded people to this policy?
The Crimean Tatar Resource Center presents the analysis of violations of human rights in the occupied Crimea in 2018. According to our information, during the reporting period there were registered: 6 victims, 1 missing person, 92 searches, 128 arrests, 152 interrogations/interviews, 206 arrests, 492 violations of the right to a fair trial, 57 cases of violations of the right to the highest attainable level of physical and mental health, 50 illegal transfers, etc. Most of the violations were committed against the representatives of the indigenous Crimean Tatar people. Also, the report mentions a number of illegal actions of the occupation authorities of Crimea, committed during 2018. In addition, the material contains a comparative analysis of violations of human rights in Crimea over 2017-2018.
