Over the four years of Crimea's occupation, Russian law enforcers detained 456 Ukrainian citizens, including Crimean Tatars. Ukraine's Foreign Ministry said that in a statement on Twitter. 

'During the mentioned period, the overall human rights situation in Crimea has badly deteriorated. Detentions of Ukrainians and Crimean Tatars became a common practice. Russia continues to live in its imperial past, going back to the USSR. We're not going to play along', the Ministry stressed.

Ukraine's chief diplomatic office added that Russian policemen and special service agents conducted 377 interrogations and 112 searches over the mentioned period in Crimea. Over 40 political prisoners serve time, judged under false charges.
