Human Rights Abuses in Russian-Occupied Crimea
This report was written and published by Andrii Klymenko in accordance with the Atlantic Council and Freedom House and presented by the author in Washington, DC in March, 2015.
This report is part of the Atlantic Council’s Ukraine in Europe Initiative. The Initiative also includes the Ukrainian World Congress, the Smith Richardson Foundation, the George Chopivsky Foundation, Chevron USA, US State Department, and the Espirito Santo Financial Group.
The report is not a complete account of the many human rights violations in Crimea, but it makes clear that physical harassment, criminal prosecution, and forced emigration of potentially “disloyal” groups is part and parcel of Russia’s control strategy for the peninsula.
