International Human Rights Committee "Crimea" will be created in Ukraine. The organizers called its primary aim to assist political prisoners in Crimea, their families, and consideration of human violations in Crimea. The head of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov told it at a press conference in Kyiv.
"We want to bring back the human rights violations in Crimea into the set of issues that are considered in the context of relations between Ukraine and Russia", — Chubarov said.
According to the head of the Mejlis, the committee will guided by the work of organizations that deal with human rights for the last two years.
Russian lawyer Mark Feigin said that the organization will be engaged in human rights monitoring in Crimea.
"The Committee is created in order to engage not only Crimean Tatars in human rights issues, Crimean Tatars rights. This is a common question. And practical, applied goals are who monitors how many political cases are investigated, how many people are missing? How to help those who will be condemned soon?", — Feigin said.
The lawyer pointed out the need to promote the Crimean issue in the international field. According to him, statements by some European politicians that the sanctions should be suspended because there is progress in the Normandy format, are a bluff. Therefore it is necessary to remind that the sanctions against the Russian Federation are introduced for Crimea, not for Donbass.
