The manager of the Crimean Tatar Resource Center Liudmyla Korotkykh in an interview with the Hromadske Radio media agency spoke about the violations of women's rights in the occupied Crimea, stressing that this pressure will only increase.

 

Korotkykh said that three women were imprisoned in the occupied Crimea for political reasons. They are Halyna Dovhopola, who is accused under the article of espionage, Anna Sukhonosova, who is under the same article, as well as the recent case of Nina Malakhova, who was sentenced to 4.5 years of imprisonment in a general regime colony under the article of assistance in terrorist activities.

“During the entire period of the occupation of the peninsula, the Russian security forces conducted 18 searches in the houses of women. This is primarily due to their civic position, with their social activities, in particular, they are journalists, and a search was carried out at the teacher's place. Therefore, it all continues. Our organization also recorded 21 cases of administrative harassment. We predict that this pressure will only increase”,- she added.
