The international organizations keep recording systematic and massive human rights violations in Crimea, according to the Poroshenko’s official website citing the President’s speech at a forum "Ukraine’s fight for freedom continues," held at the Capitol in Washington.
Poroshenko said that as of now more than 130 criminal cases have been launched against the Crimean Tatars in the occupied peninsula, in particular, against the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People. The kidnappings and murders of the indigenous population also continue.
- Russia militarizes Crimea. It aims to deploy nuclear weapons on the peninsula, said Poroshenko.
The President stressed that should the international sanctions against Russia be lifted, the murder of Ukrainian citizens will go unpunished.
- Can anyone in the West accept it? I am sure that noone. Sanctions should remain in place unless sustainable peace is established in Donbas, unless Ukraine’s sovereignty is restored in Crimea, unless Russia changes its stance towards Ukraine.Otherwise, it will be a compromise that will cost the loss of values and justice, said the Ukraine’s President.
