Crimea: Breaking the Wall of Silence

Three Human Rights Houses have undertaken a Mission aimed at breaking the wall of silence and documenting first-hand the human rights situation in Crimea.

Discover the findings of the Mission to the occupied Peninsula.

The visit brought together experienced human rights defenders from three Human Rights Houses. It has contributed to ensuring that the facts on the ground are known and has helped to give a voice to the Crimean people.

“The level of political repressions unleashed in Crimea in 2014 has not decreased, though the forms and types of pressure and persecution have changed,” reported Tatsiana Reviaka, member of the human rights monitoring Mission to the peninsula.

Representatives of Human Rights Houses undertook the Mission from 14-18 September 2018.
