Ukraine. Crimea and Donbas report. 23 October-01 November, 2017

1. Released Crimean Tatar leaders.

Crimean Tatar leaders Akhtem Chiygoz and Ilmi Umerov, who were sentenced in occupied Crimea in politically motivated trials, have been released from Russian custody on 25 October, 2017.

In a resolution adopted on 6 October 2017 by the EU Parliament, EU side has demanded Russia to release its all Ukrainian political prisoners and called for sanctions to be imposed on those responsible for politically motivated processes. Yet, Russia is not ceasing its repressions against the indigenous population of the peninsula it occupied and has arrested more prisoners in a new wave of religious persecution.

A recent UN High Commissar Human Rights Office report had condemned Russia’s human rights abuses in occupied Crimea. Russia has been recognized as an occupying power in Crimea by a UN resolution (https://goo.gl/qvRXut).
