Crimean human rights protection group and other NGOs filed a special appeal to the UNHCR, claiming serious violations of human rights in the annexed peninsula. This is mentioned in the message of the group. "A number of restrictions was imposed in penal colonies and remand centres of Crimea in order to co,mbat the Covid-19 spread. However, the real situation that showed up during the monitoring of Crimean human rights protection group raises serious concerns", the message says. The group claimed that the so-called "remand centre No.1" of Russia's Federal Penitentiary Service organized a "quarantine cell" that holds up to six people, as prisoners put it. People with possible signs of Covid-19 or ARVI are held there; there are no due sanitary and hygienic conditions, not even hot water. The inmates do not get tested, just have their body temperature checked. They don't even have any masks or sanitizers.
