Presentation of the results of the conference “Human Rights in Crimea: a view from Germany”
In the fifth year of occupation, human rights defenders continue to record a permanent deterioration of the situation with respect for human rights, with cultural, economic and social conditions in Crimea.
But how and to what extent is the situation really covered outside of Ukraine (for example, Germany)? What challenges does Ukraine face in this issue and what steps should be taken by the Ukrainian government, human rights defenders, journalists etc. to improve the quality of informing about events in Crimea abroad?
Answers to these questions from the Ukrainian, German and European perspectives will be announced during the presentation of the results of the conference “Human Rights in Crimea: a view from Germany” in the briefing (Interfax-Ukraine, 8/5a, Reitarska Str., Kyiv).
