Brussels condemned political prosecutions, repressions and other human rights violations in the Russian-occupied Crimea – such as limiting rights of Crimean Tatars. Vera Jourova, EU  Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality said this during her speech in the European Parliament on May 12. The MEPs discussed Russia’s actions that abuse the rights of Crimean Tatars on the peninsula (Radio Liberty). 

“The decision of the so-called Supreme Court of Crimea to ban the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people (which is their key self-governance body), and to mark it as an “extremist organization” is a rude assault on rights of all Crimean Tatars”, she said, “adding that it is an extra worsening of the situation with human rights on Crimean peninsula since its illegal annexation by Russia in 2014”.
