Today Council of Europe marks Crimean day
Main questions concerning human rights in occupied Crimea will be raised
The Council of Europe marks "Crimean day”, dedicated to the situation in the annexed territory of the peninsula, according to member of the Ukrainian delegation to PACE MP Heorhiy Lohvynskyi.
It is planned to hold a "round table" embracing issues of "Human Rights in the occupied Crimea". Also photo exhibition "Fighting through the years" will be presented in the framework of “Crimean day”. The event will also bring together famous Crimean artists. Among the announced speakers are representatives of PACE, Ukrainian Helsinki Human Rights Union, Crimean Tatar Majlis, Regional Center for Human Rights.
“Today we mark the first in the history of the Council of Europe event, called "Crimean day". I hope we can show our professionalism on this regard. Since this is the last session of the PACE in this year, it should be spent with well intention. So that in January, during the vote for the extension of sanctions against Russia, deputies could remember what the aggressor is punished for,” wrote member of the Ukrainian delegation to PACE in his Facebook.
As the EU does not recognise the annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol, it imposed a bunch of sanctions against Russian Federation.
