 United Nations Are Concerned about Increasing Discrimination of Ukrainians and Tatars in Crimea

The human rights situation in Crimea remains of great concern.

A new report issued today by the Office of United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights says about it.

Harassment and discrimination against Ukrainian nationals, Crimean Tatars, religious minorities, minorities in general and activists who opposed the 16 March "referendum" have intensified, the report states. NGOs have warned of a possible new wave of internally displaced persons (IDPs) from Crimea during the next few months as new restrictions take effect and make people's lives there untenable.

"This would include business people who were having serious difficulties with continuing to operate their businesses in Crimea; lecturers and teachers because they fear they will be sacked at the beginning of the new academic year for holding Ukrainian nationality or because they are Crimean Tatar; and families with sons of military age who do not want to be called for service into the Russian Federation army," says the report.
