The opening ceremony of the Photo Exhibition "Abroad" reflecting the life of the Crimean Tatar people in the occupied Crimea was held at the San Francisco Public Library on August 2, 2018.

This was reported by the press service of the Consulate General of Ukraine in San Francisco.

The goal of this event in San Francisco, which is a multinational and ethnoconfessional city where the United Nations Charter was signed on June 26, 1945, was to attract the attention of the international community in general and the American community in particular to the brutal and systematic violations of fundamental human rights and freedoms by the Russian occupation authorities in Crimea. In particular, the intention of the Consular Office of Ukraine is to show that multiple violations in the occupied peninsula will not be left unnoticed, and the actions of the occupation authorities are unpunished.

Consul of the Consulate General of Ukraine in San Francisco Oleksandr Krotenko and representatives of the diplomatic mission participated in the opening ceremony of the photo exhibition.

In particular, during two months, about 20 photographs of the outstanding Ukrainian photographer of Crimean Tatar origin, Emine Ziyatdinova, will be posted at the San Francisco library.

As a reminder, the San Francisco Public Library received the Best American Library Award in 2017.
