RUSSIA CONTINUES THE POLICY OF FORCED PASSPORTISATION OF UKRAINIAN CITIZENS IN CRIMEA
The Ministry for Reintegration of the Temporary Occupied Territories of Ukraine notes that the rights of Ukrainian citizens who have become hostages of the Russian occupation administrations in Donbas and Crimea must be protected.
The National Center for Documenting Violations of Human Rights and Freedoms - Property, Personal, and the like is currently being established under the aegis of the Ministry for Reintegration.
This center will become public for all who are in need, and the collected facts will be the basis for the protection of their rights and freedoms both in the courts of Ukraine and in international courts. We will do everything to ensure assistance to persons to bring criminals to justice, whether it is an aggressor country or a specific person. No actions aimed at the appropriation of property should remain unpunished.
Ukraine remains determined to protect the rights and interests of Ukrainian citizens living under Russian occupation both in Donbas, and in the Crimean Peninsula.
