According to the reports of the United Nations (UN) High Commissioner for Human Rights, the occupying Russian administration exiled at least 191 people from Crimea in 2019.

According to the report prepared by the United Nations on human rights violations in Crimea, at least 191 people who defined as “foreigners” according to Russian law, were exiled from the occupied Crimea. 109 Ukrainian citizens (95 male and 14 female), are also among the people deported from the peninsula.

“The number of rulings taken about deportation decreased twice compared to previous years. According to the decisions of the so-called courts, most of the exiled people were working illegally in the peninsula, they lost their identity cards or had a previous criminal record,” the report stated. Also, it has reported that most people who exiled from the peninsula banned from entering Russia.

The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights recalled that, according to international humanitarian law, the individual or mass exile of the people living in the occupied land is prohibited, regardless of the reason.
