The sad truth about the Crimea


The Crimea SOS public organization has published a book named as The Encyclopedia of Repressions in the Crimea from the moment of annexation by Russia, in which the information of human rights organizations about the violation of human rights in the annexed peninsula has been systematized for the first time. According to co-founder of the organization Tamila Tasheva, the book will be transferred to libraries and government institutions.

According to her, this edition is very detailed. It systematized the information of human rights organizations regarding human rights violations in the occupied Ukrainian territory.

Tasheva expressed gratitude to human rights organizations, and first of all to activists in the Crimea and Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, who recorded all these violations and provided them with publicity, as well as the representation of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Ukraine for the possibility of conducting research and publishing the book. Ms. Tasheva is confident that all the facts recorded in the book will serve as the basis for V. Putin’s conviction for crimes against humanity.
