UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has prepared an interim report on the human rights situation in Crimea, which refers to the numerous persecutions of the local population. First Deputy Foreign Minister of Ukraine Emine Dzhaparova informed about this on her Facebook page.
"The report records the continuing practices of illegal persecution of Crimeans, the use of torture, the transfer of illegally convicted persons to the territory of Russia, the impunity of the Russian occupation authorities, including the FSB," Dzhaparova noted.
In addition, the document separately notes the retrospective application of Russian legislation in Crimea, in particular for the attack on freedom of the media and depriving Crimeans of housing, which is actually one of the forms of forced change in the demographic composition of the population.
Also, the UN Secretary General draws attention to the attack on religious freedom, in particular to the persecution of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine on the peninsula.
This report has been prepared in response to last year's UN General Assembly Resolution 75/192. It will be presented during the 47th session of the UN Human Rights Council, which begins its work on Monday.
