The European Parliament in Strasbourg has overwhelmingly adopted a resolution condemning Russia for its treatment of the Crimean Tatar population in the Ukrainian region of Crimea, which was annexed by Moscow in 2014.

In recent days, the Russia-installed authorities in Crimea have stepped up their pressure even more.

In other Crimea-related news, the EU Parliament also passed a resolution that the return of Crimea is required before the lifting of sanctions:

The European parliament has named the return of the Crimean Peninsula, which Russia annexed in 2014, to Ukraine as one of the necessary conditions for lifting sanctions against the country, according to a resolution published on the parliament’s website.

“The restoration of Ukrainian control over the peninsula is one of the prerequisites for re-establishing cooperative relations with the Russian Federation, including the suspension of related sanctions,” the resolution passed by the EU parliament on Thursday said.

There are good politicians in Russia, Nemtsov was, a lot of Russians want nothing to do with these aggressive actions.

Crimean Tatar activists said they were determined to draw attention to human rights violations on the peninsula and the disappearances of Crimean Tatars who they say have been abducted by Russian security forces.

Under pressure from the activists, the Ukrainian government made the trade blockade official in November.

In recent days, the Russia-installed authorities in Crimea have stepped up their pressure even more.
