In the annexed Crimea there are serious human rights violations. This is stated by the report, published on the website of the UN Office of the High Commissioner on December 9th – according to Ukrainska pravda.
"In the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, the status of which is described in resolution 68/262 of the General Assembly, the people continue to suffer from a wide reduction of their rights in connection with the legal basis constraints imposed on them by the Russian Federation", - said the report.
