The Board of UN High Commissioner for Human Rights demands that the Russian government lift all bans concerning Crimean Tatars residing in the Russian-annexed peninsula. This was mentioned in the report released by the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine.

‘The Russian government… should refrain from saving or imposing new restrictions on opportunities of the Crimean Tatar society to save their representative offices, including the Mejlis’, reads the report.

The UN also urged Moscow to cancel the legal norms letting law enforcers forcefully evict or confiscate private property in Crimea.
