Audrey Azoulay, the Director-General of UNESCO, presented a report on the situation in Crimea at the 212th session of the UNESCO Executive Board.

iDemocracy informs so with the reference to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine

“Information in the report shows the further deterioration of the human rights situation in the temporarily occupied Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol”,
a statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs says.

In addition, the Russian occupation administration continues to further disregard international humanitarian law, systematically resort to political persecution, commit cultural and religious oppression. At the same time, the educational process is aimed at erasing Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar identities.

Information for the report was provided by Ukraine and UNESCO's institutional partners, namely the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, the OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media, the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) and Amnesty International.

The Director General of UNESCO will present the next report on the situation in the temporarily occupied Crimea at the 215th session of the Executive Board.
