Situation overview in Crimea March 2017
One of the most important March’s events: 12 prisoners who were serving their sentences in penitentiary institutions of the peninsula, had been returned to mainland Ukraine. This is the first precedent, when prisoners were moved from the occupied territory to the territory controlled by Ukrainian government. Generally, the occupation authorities used traditional methods of pressure on civil activists - arrests, unreasonable searches and seizures, interrogations. The freedom of peaceful assemblies is blatantly violated, and criminal prosecution against some undesirable activists is still in place.
