Since the annexation of Crimea in 2014, 70 people were unlawfully imprisoned under politically motivated cases, the research by the experts of the Crimean human rights group says, as Krym.Realii reports.

 “As of today, 52 people are still detained in prisons and detention centres in Crimea and Russia, three persons are under house arrest, and this number isn’t ultimate because there are criminal cases in Crimea, in which political motives of persecution may be proven,” the human rights defenders say.
