The Ministry of Foreign Affairs opens an exhibition project “Being yourself is not a Crime!” about the children of Ukrainian political prisoners
05 March 2021 12:25

On March 9 at 11:00 Minister for Foreign Affairs Dmytro Kuleba will open the exhibition project at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine called "Being yourself is not a crime!" about Russia's persecution of Crimean Tatars in the temporarily occupied Crimea and the city of Sevastopol.

The project focuses on the children of Crimean Tatars, political prisoners who have been illegally imprisoned by Russia on fabricated charges of "extremism" and "terrorism."

The carefree childhood of many Crimean children ended on the day when members of the secret services of the Russian occupation authorities broke into their homes. Today, more than 200 minor children are left without parental care. Following arrests, in some villages where Crimean Tatars live compactly so-called "women's" streets appeared. Many children need long-term psychological rehabilitation.

The purpose of the exhibition project is to intensify Ukraine’s diplomatic struggle for the release of all political prisoners of the Kremlin, draw the attention of the international community to disproportionately long imprisonment terms, appalling conditions for illegally detained Ukrainians, and Russia’s violations of international humanitarian law.
