In occupied Crimea after February 24, there were documented 41 cases of persecution of Crimean residents for "discrediting" the Russian armed forces. This was announced by the head of the United Nations Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine Matilda Bogner during a briefing.

According to her, in Crimea, the already limited civic space for expressing disagreement and critical thoughts was further narrowed due to the introduction of new legislation.

"So far, we have documented 41 cases of persecution of Crimean residents for "discrediting" or "calling for obstruction" of the use of the Russian Armed Forces. Many previously available media in Crimea were also blocked after February 24, 2022, severely restricting the right to freedom of expression on the peninsula”, Bogner said.
