SIMFEROPOL, March 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Crimea’s Supreme Council has addressed the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights to assess the human rights situation in Ukraine due to the detention of Donetsk Region Governor Pavel Gubarev.
Crimean deputies say the new Ukrainian authorities accuse Gubarev “of an attempt to seize power, an infringement upon the constitutional system and the seizure of administrative buildings”.
“Such precedents have been created by the authorities that try to use force against Ukrainian citizens and influence the society,” parliamentarians say.
The Crimean parliament voiced concern about violations of the constitutional principle of supremacy of law. Parliamentarians believe that “any state should observe the fundamental principle of democracy. These are values, which should be protected first of all”.
