Overview of the situation in Crimea. December 2016
Two positive issues regarding the situation on human rights marked December: the adoption of the UN General Assembly resolution on human rights violations in Crimea, and the joint visit of Ombudsmen of Ukraine and Russia to Crimea. Unfortunately, this has not led to practical improvements of the situation on human rights - in December the political trials on the so-called cases of "February 26", "Hizb ut-Tahrir", "Saboteurs" have continued to be carried out. Well-known pro-Ukrainian activist Vladimir Baluh was arrested for alleged possession of weapons found during the search. Also, the new Attorney General was appointed in Crimea.
