European Court Human Rights (ECHR) mission visits the occupied Crimea on January 25. It was claimed by OSCE Secretary General Thorbjørn Jagland, informs the European Court's press service.

The Mission is expected to assess the situation, concerning human rights on the occupied peninsula.

“More than 2.5 million people live in Crimea, and all of them are protected by the European Convention on Human Rights and they should be able to benefit from it. Nevertheless, for the last year, no delegation from the international organization could visit this place”, said Jagland.

According to him, the mission will work “in the conditions of full independence” and will not deal with any issue, connected with the territorial status of Crimea”.

“It will help us receive clear and full information about the situation, concerning human rights, and make sure that the people of Crimea are not forgotten”, Jagland said.
