Russia denies access to Crimea to UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission

Ukrinform
The Russian Federation continues to deny access to the occupied Crimea to the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine.

"We visited administrative borderline with Crimea – entry-exit points Kalanchak and Chongar. Such visits and speaking to people who cross the line are one of the ways we conduct remote monitoring of the human rights situation in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, Ukraine, temporarily occupied by the Russian Federation," reads the report on Facebook.

The Russian Federation still denies access to Crimea to the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine, in line with relevant General Assembly resolutions.

As Ukrinform reported, the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission began its work in Ukraine in March 2014. The Mission’s offices are located in Kyiv, Donetsk, Dnipro, Kharkiv, Kramatorsk, and Odesa, which cover the entire zone affected by the conflict on both sides of the contact line.
