The United Nations said on Tuesday that they did not find any basis for concerns about violence against the Russian-speaking population of Ukraine, Gianni Magazzeni, Chief of the Americas Europe and Central Asia Branch of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights said, Anadolu Agency reports.
"We do not have any credible issues that would justify concern for the Russian-speaking population of Ukraine." –he said.
“A number of measures taken in Crimea are deeply concerning from a human rights perspective. These include the introduction of Russian citizenship, making it difficult for those who opt to maintain their Ukrainian citizenship to stay in Crimea” - the report said
“The current situation also raises concerns with regard to land and property ownership, wages and pensions, health service, labor rights, education and access to justice,” the report adds.
On the question of people reported as missing after the protests in Crimea, Megazzani said 140-150 people are still missing and there are ongoing investigations regarding that. He added that all reports of missing people are linked to protests in January and February.
