Crimea, a Victim of Putin’s War Crimes Since 2014, Must Always Be Ukraine

watch recording

Russian war crimes did not start in February 2022; Russia has been committing war crimes in Crimea and the occupied parts of Donbas since 2014.  Significant human rights issues included: disappearances; torture, punitive psychiatric incarceration; harsh prison conditions; violence, and systemic discrimination against Crimean Tatars and ethnic Ukrainians and more. Until Ukraine regains control over Crimea and other occupied parts of Ukraine horrible atrocities and human rights violations will not stop.
