Share with:


An annual human rights report released by the US cites “credible reports” of significant human rights issues in Russian-occupied Crimea.

These include “unlawful or arbitrary killings, including extrajudicial killings; forced disappearance; torture and cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment by Russia or Russia-led ‘authorities’ – including punitive psychiatric incarceration; harsh and life-threatening prison conditions and transfer of prisoners to Russia.”

Russia annexed Ukraine’s territory of Crimea in 2014 and formally integrated it into Russia. Ukraine, the US, the European Union and many other countries, consider the annexation a violation of international law.
