Human rights keep being violated on the peninsula, particularly in relation to the Crimean Tatars, said Tanju Bilgich, the press-secretary of the Foreign Affairs Ministry of Turkey, on March 2, as cited by "Anadolu".
Biglich went on saying that human rights violations are recorded by many independent observers.
