Thematic reviews of the human rights situation under occupation

Crimea beyond rules. Thematic reviews of the human rights situation under occupation

“Crimea Beyond Rules” – the series of thematic reviews of violations of international human rights standards in occupied Crimea Although the President of the Russian Federation V. Putin justified his decision on the annexation of Crimea by the necessity to protect the local population, the following years showed that Russia’s real interest in Crimea is only the seizure of the territory and its militarization.
Unilateral subordination of the population, clearing the territory of “undesirable elements”, colonization of the peninsula by people from Russia, suppression of public discussion, deprivation of property clearly show that people do not matter in the process of “integration” of Crimea.
It is difficult to say whether these actions are the conscious copying of the strategy of Nazi Germany or this is the objective logic of authoritarianism that dictates the same patterns of behavior. Nevertheless, it is impossible to deny the horrendous similarity of the events that took place on the eve and during the Second World War, and today’s behavior of Russia.
Here are some illustrations of how the occupation of Crimea looks from the point of view of international law.
The reviews were prepared by the team of experts from the Regional Centre for Human Rights, Ukrainian Helsinki Human Rights Union, the expert-analytical group CHROT.
