 It is crucial to establish UN mission to monitor human rights in occupied Crimea, Mejlis Head Chubarov says

Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People Refat Chubarov called on the UN to establish an international human rights monitoring mission in Russia-occupied Crimea.

He stated this during the protest action outside the Russian Embassy in Kyiv Friday, Nov. 6, Censor.NET informs citing Radio Svoboda.

"The first step towards the de-occupation is the creation of permanent monitoring mission in Crimea - a mission to monitor human rights. This decision should be taken by the United Nations. There is a resolution of the General Assembly that this territory is ours. But no one knows what's going on there. Without consideration of the stories shown there by the Russia Today," Chubarov said.
