Discrimination and Persecution of the Crimean Tatar People in 2014-2021

At the end of March, the problem of racial (or ethnic) discrimination is widely discussed in the world, as part of the UN – declared Week Against Racism following March 21 – the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

On these dates, ADC Memorial once again addresses the issue of discrimination of the Crimean Tatar people. The persecution and discrimination of the Crimean Tatars in the present, the silenced tragedy of the repressed people in the past, the destruction of monuments, the prohibition of self-government bodies – all these are links in a chain of systematic violations of the rights of the Crimean Tatar population. This should not be hushed up.
