At the autumn session of the PACE, it is proposed to discuss the persecution of indigenous peoples in Crimea

The autumn session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe will start in Strasbourg on September 27 in full-time and part-time form and will last until September 30. Among the topics proposed for discussion at the debate is “Russia’s political persecution of the indigenous peoples of Crimea.”

Earlier, a member of the Ukrainian delegation to the PACE, a member of the Verkhovna Rada Rustem Umerov said that Ukraine had submitted a request for this debate. A corresponding letter was sent to PACE President Rick Dimes.

The request was sent after a new wave of searches, detentions and arrests of Crimean Tatars on the peninsula. Among those arrested is Crimean Tatar activist and politician Nariman Jelal .

On June 23, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe adopted a resolution on the rights of Crimean Tatars in the Russian-occupied Crimea, which, in particular, contains “clear signals about the need to respect the rights of Crimean Tatars in the occupied Crimea.”

    As you can see from this pathetic resolution not one ultimatum to the terrorist state, instead we have the usual jellyfish crap. Contains, acknowledges, notes(twice), draws, and finally everyone’s favourite, calls.

    – Contains “clear signals about the need to respect the rights of Crimean Tatars in the occupied Crimea”;

    – Acknowledges that “since the beginning of 2014, the Russian Federation has been temporarily occupying the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol (Crimea)” and that Crimean Tatars are “suffering from gross violations of their rights”;

    – Notes that “the repression of the Russian occupation regime against the Crimean Tatars includes killings, enforced disappearances, torture, inhuman and degrading treatment”;

    – Notes “the facts of forced and illegal movement of Crimean Tatars to the territory of Russia”;

    – Draws attention to the “persecution of journalists, restrictions on freedom of speech and assembly, pressure on Crimean Tatar human rights defenders”;

    – Calls for “the abolition of the decision banning the activities of the Crimean Tatar People’s Majlis and allowing its leaders Mustafa Dzhemilev and Refat Chubarov to return to Crimea.”
