Experts of the Human Rights Information Centre prepared the Review on situation with freedom of speech in Crimea. The data was obtained as a result of “first-hand” monitoring, based on information from official sources and legislation, as well as other open sources that underwent additional verification.

At least 10 persons are masterminds behind a massive attack on the freedom of speech and expression of opinion in Crimea. 50 more individuals are the actual perpetrators of this crime – directly engaged in persecutions and threats to journalists on the occupied peninsula.

The Russian government is preparing a new act of political reprisal against critics of its actions on the Crimean peninsula, annexed by Russia in 2014 in direct contradiction to international law.
