PACE, in its resolution approved on Thursday, has called on Russia, which annexed the Crimean peninsula, to ensure the rights of Ukrainians and Crimean Tatars living there, Ukrinform reports.
"The present situation of minorities in Crimea, in particular of Crimean Tartars and Ukrainians, raises the utmost concern. The assembly urges Russia, which is in illegal control of this territory, to ensure that their rights are not violated," reads the document.
According to the resolution, the assembly is deeply concerned by the state of media freedom and freedom of expression in Russia, and in particular by the biased coverage of the events in Ukraine, and even manipulations which have largely contributed to the inter-ethnic instability in the country, as well as by suppression of the public debate and any criticism.
The resolution also condemns the violation of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.
