Atlantic Council and Freedom House report chronicles human rights abuses in Russian-occupied Crimea
On 6 March 2015 the Atlantic Council of the United States and Freedom House presented an extensive report at the Atlantic Council headquarters in Washington, U.S.A. by Andrii Klymenko titled Human Rights Abuses in Russian-Occupied Crimea.
This report chronicles the alarming deterioration of human rights in Crimea since its illegal occupation and annexation by Russia, and the effectiveness of the Russian political narrative that masks the stark reality faced by the Crimean people.
The Ukrainian World Congress partners with the Atlantic Council in implementing the Ukraine in Europe Initiative that focuses on establishing a solid policy framework and a series of initiatives that aim to ensure the international community fully supports Ukraine’s independence, sovereignty, territorial integrity (inclusive of Crimea) and Euro-Atlantic integration.
“This report uncovers what Russia’s massive disinformation campaign is subduing, namely that Russia’s expansionism grossly violates international law and basic human rights. The Ukrainian World Congress urges the international community to not turn a blind eye to the plight of the oppressed in Crimea as this will only embolden Russia’s imperialist regime to go further,” stated UWC President Eugene Czolij.
