Since the Russian Federation illegally annexed the Crimea in 2014, its systematically repressed the Crimean Tatar people, including banning the Meijlis, a representative body of the Crimean Tatar people.

“Within the first six months of 2019, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) documented 67 searches and raids carried out by Russian Federation law enforcement officers in Crimea. At least 53 (nearly 79 percent) impacted Crimean Tatars. OHCHR notes that the number of raids against Crimean Tatars almost doubled compared to the same period last year,” a report by the United Nations Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine reads.
