The criminal conduct of “mobilization” in the occupied Crimea, which in particular affected many representatives of the indigenous Crimean Tatar people, and has already caused the death of dozens of Crimean Tatars, as well as the repressions of aggressor’s punishers against Crimean Tatar activists, have both signs of the Russian invaders’ genocidal practices and state terrorism.

Taking into account the recent appeals of representatives of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People to the UN Secretary General with an appeal to help the victims of Russian terror and to recognize the Kremlin regime as terrorist, our Association in October-November 2022 informed the representative structures, associations and organizations of indigenous peoples of dozens of countries of the world about the situation with Russian terror in the occupied Crimea, districts of Kherson and Zaporizhzhya regions.

The appeal of the Association aroused genuine interest among the indigenous peoples of the world; in particular – some indigenous representative structures and organizations of Canada and New Zealand. Also, based on these developments, the ARC provided its proposals available on the UN website at the request of the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to improve the interaction between the United Nations and the institutions of the world’s indigenous peoples, emphasizing the specifics of situations where indigenous peoples become victims of state terrorism, foreign aggression and occupation.
