OHCHR documented the arbitrary arrests of 33 individuals (30 men and three women) in Crimea during that period, which represents an almost fivefold increase in comparison with the seven individuals arrested in the 2019–2020 period. Thirty-one of the victims belonged to religious minorities in Crimea (21 Muslims and 10 Jehovah’s Witnesses)".
