Sedova noted that human rights activists also recorded 47 facts of arbitrary detentions, 20 searches and 18 interrogations.
"There were also 48 cases of seizure or damage to the equipment," she added.
In addition, human rights defenders recorded four bans on entry to Crimea, 30 cases of threats, 18 censorship cases, 9 DDoS attacks and more than one hundred obstructions of shooting.
