According to the Crimean Tatar Resource Center on May 15, its lawyers have developed a questionnaire to document Russian war crimes in Ukraine.

Human rights activists state that Ukraine has been defending its sovereignty and territorial integrity for a long time: more than 9 years ago, in 2014, the Russian Federation illegally occupied Crimea and from that moment the peninsula turned into a territory of lawlessness, and arrests, detentions, kidnappings, searches, murders are not fiction, but realities of the present.

It is indicated that before the Russia’s full-scale invasion into Ukraine, the human rights activists of the Center systematically monitored and recorded human rights violations in the occupied Crimea, and after February 24, 2022, they realized that they needed to expand their geography.

After all, after the start of a full-scale invasion, Russia has expanded its territory of terror and violates human rights and commits war crimes in the newly occupied territories of Ukraine.

Therefore, human rights activists began to record human rights violations, as well as war crimes in Russia and in the occupied south of mainland Ukraine. The Center notes the importance of documenting human rights violations and war crimes as a prerequisite for bringing perpetrators to justice; compensation for harm caused by the criminal actions of Russia; restoration of historical justice.

The Center’s experts point out that it is important to note that sooner or later Russia will be forced to pay compensation to all victims of the war precisely because of documenting violations of rights and war crimes.

Therefore, they urge all victims to fill out the Center’s questionnaire and send the completed file to
