Canada concerned about Russia's actions in Crimea – Freeland

Canada has expressed concern about the numerous cases of Russia's harassment of the rights of Crimea residents.

This was stated by Minister of Foreign Affairs of Canada Chrystia Freeland, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Canada is deeply concerned about the politically motivated use of the ‘anti-terrorist’ and ‘anti-extremist’ legislation; human rights violations against activists, journalists and lawyers; arbitrary detentions, disappearances and harassment of Crimean Tatars and other minorities," Freeland said.

She also condemned the Russia’s oppression of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people. "We condemn the ban on the activity of the Mejlis and call on Russia to abolish its illegal and immoral decision," the Canadian Foreign Minister said.
