The European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) of the Council of Europe expressed grave concern at “serious allegations of intimidation and discrimination against Ukrainian speakers and Tatars in the Crimean region of Ukraine, now under the de facto control of the Russian Federation”.
“The measures that have been taken since the creation of two new constituent entities within the Russian Federation are aimed at restoring the whole range of political, socioeconomic and cultural rights of representatives of all peoples living in Crimea. Russian, Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar have been recognised as the official languages in the republic,” the ministry said.
It expressed hope that “the ECRI will watch Kiev’s compliance with its call for countering discrimination against Russian-speaking people and representatives of other national, ethnic, linguistic and religious minorities”.
