«Responsibility for all human rights’ violations in Crimea
rests on the Russian Federation as an occupying authority», Pavlo Klimkin said
during the meeting with the OSCE High Commissioner on National Minorities
Astrid Thors on March 19, 2015.
During the meeting the parties expressed concerns about the
deterioration of the conditions of guaranteeing rights of the Crimean Tatars
and the Ukrainians as a consequence of the Russian aggression and illegal
annexation of the Crimean peninsula.
It was underlined that the constant international monitoring
of the current situation of the national minorities in the entire territory of
Ukraine, with special emphasis on the Crimea, by the HCNM and the others
international organizations is needed.
