Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people is seeking for sending UN special mission to Crimea, to monitor the respect for Crimean Tatar rights. Head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov announced this during a briefing in Kyiv.
“UN special mission should be created in Crimea, and all the legal and organizing issues should be settled. Information that comes from Crimea residents, journalist, human right activists, not the Crimean Tatars only, differs from that comes from Crimean authorities”- he said.
According to Chubarov, UN is creating special mechanisms to monitor how the authorities respect human rights in the region.
Following decision was made at UN World Conference on Indigenous peoples which took place September 22 in New York, the United States.
Crimea seceded from Ukraine and was annexed by Russia in March, following a local referendum on region’s status.
The EU, Crimean Tatar association in Turkey and the OSCE have already expressed its concern over the abuse of Crimean Tatar rights in Crimea.
