Severe and systemic human rights violations in Crimea since Russia’s illegal occupation of the peninsula
Two years ago, Russia launched its military aggression against Ukraine, illegally occupying the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol.
Russia’s aggression has resulted in gross, systemic violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms in occupied Crimea, affecting Crimean Tatar and Ukrainian communities in particular, as identified by independent missions of the OSCE and the UN.
Murders, torture, harassment, illegal detentions, enforced disappearances, and the persecution of journalists, human rights defenders, and activists are among the most widespread human rights violations in occupied Crimea. These crimes so far remain uninvestigated by the occupying power.
