Report on activities of regional Commissioner presented in Crimea

On April 4, Commissioner for Human Rights in the Republic of Crimea Lyudmila Lubina presented a report on the observance of human and civil rights and freedoms in the Republic of Crimea for 2017.

In her speech, the ombudswoman noted that, to date, one of the main difficulties consists in the Crimean people’ ignorance of legislation in general, as well as significant difference between Russian and Ukrainian legal provisions. «And in this situation, free high-quality legal assistance is very important. However, unfortunately, this activity is working with complexities in the Republic of Crimea," the ombudswoman said.

The report was being created on the basis of the analysis of written appeals of citizens, communication during personal receptions, official responses of state and municipal authorities and other institutions, monitoring of mass media on the state of human rights, holding exit events, personal visits to authorities providing public services.

"The conducted analysis of the state of human rights and freedoms in the Republic of Crimea for 2017 allows to conclude, that the guarantees of human rights and freedoms are provided in the republic, and existing violations are not of a mass, systemic nature," Lyudmila Lubina noted.
