Human rights violations in Crimea demand increased pressure on Kremlin – Kuleba.

Russia’s actions in the occupied Crimea, namely the growing human rights violations and militarization of the peninsula, require increased pressure on the Kremlin, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba says.

"Moscow has already lost chances to succeed in normalizing its occupation of Crimea. But the growing grave human rights violations and militarization of Crimea demand increased pressure on the Kremlin to make it end the occupation and return the seized peninsula," Kuleba wrote on Twitter on July 25.

Today, July 25, marks two years since the announcement of the Crimea Declaration by U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo. "This historic document has made it crystal clear: the U.S. will never recognize Russia’s attempted annexation of Crimea and is ready to maintain this policy until Ukraine’s territorial integrity is restored," the minister recalled.

Kuleba expressed gratitude to the United States, which on the 80th anniversary of the Welles Declaration a few days ago, reaffirmed its Crimea policy, sending a strong signal to Moscow: illegal occupation based solely on military power will not work, it’s temporary and will end one day.

The Crimea Declaration is the document in the form of a press statement by U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, rejecting Russia’s attempted annexation of Crimea and pledging to maintain this policy until Ukraine’s territorial integrity is restored.

The declaration was made public by the U.S. Department of State on July 25, 2018, ten days after the meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and President of Russia Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.
