This was stated at a briefing in the Parliament, on Friday, by the President of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly Ikka Kanerva.
“The situation in Crimea is very delicate. A few weeks ago we have reported that the minority rights are not respected there. We understand the need of the Mission’s staying in Crimea. And we are trying to get there. I have no high expectations for this right now. But I want to tell you that we will continue to work on this,”- he said.
For your information, Russia does not allow international monitors on human rights to enter Crimea. At the same time, in early November, there have been searches in the homes of former employees of the Crimean Tatar TV Channel ATR – Lily Budzhurova, Elzara Islyamova and parents of the Channel’s owner Lenur Islyamov.
