MOSCOW, March 4. /TASS/. Ukraine’s authorities need to bring to justice organizers of Crimea blockade after these human rights violations were mentioned in the UN report, Russian Foreign Ministry’s human rights commissioner Konstantin Dolgov wrote in his Twitter microblog.
"The United Nations acknowledged that the blockade of Crimea violates basic human rights," Dolgov wrote. "Now it is important to force Kiev to bring to justice its organizers."
On Thursday, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights in Geneva published the 13th UN report on the human rights situation in Ukraine. The report urges authorities in Kiev to investigate complaints about human rights abuses committed during the so-called blockade of Crimea. The report says the civil blockade of Crimea was carried out by activists who illegally acted as law enforcement authorities.
