On behalf of Razom, a team of international lawyers has just completed work on a second legal report “Human Rights on Occupied Territory: Case of Crimea”.
The official release of the report is accompanied by presentations in Ukraine (June 15-19 in Lviv and Kyiv) and Western Europe (June 21-25 in Strasbourg, Brussels and Antwerp).
The report illustrates the background of the crisis, analyzes the human rights in Crimea, including economic, social and cultural rights, and gives recommendations to improve the current situation to the Ukrainian and Russian governments, international community and civil society. A crucial part of this report is a Human Rights Protection Manual which aims to provide Crimeans of all ethnic and religious groups with access to justice by explaining their fundamental rights. It is Razom’s intent and hope that this Manual will help lay people in Crimea learn how to protect their rights.
