MIP: The Motto 'Crimea Is Ukraine' Should Be Meaningful in Terms of Political Decisions
On December 12th, on the occasion of the International Human Rights Day, the National Media Centre ‘Territory of Reforms’ hosted the conference ‘Crimea. Annexation and Lawlessness or the Beginning of the Empire’s End?’
Opening the event, Emine Dzhaparova, First Deputy Minister of Information Policy of Ukraine noted that one of the Ministry’s most important topics was information reintegration of the temporarily occupied territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea.
“In Crimea, Ukrainian citizens are subjected to forcible passporting, enforced resettlement, systematic searches of houses of activists, detentions, interrogations, politically motivated ‘proceedings.’
“Furthermore, killings and disappearance of people are the criminal core of the repressive policy of Russia’s occupational ‘authorities’ in Crimea,” the First Deputy Minister noted.
Emine Dzhaparova stressed that the situation in the occupied peninsula must be actively discussed, in particular, on the international level so that the world community will know what is really happening in Crimea and understand the need to prolong sanctions against Russia in connection with its aggression against Ukraine.
