Foreign Affairs Minister Pavlo Klimkin has addressed the United Nations and the Council of Europe with request to recognise the coercive mental examination of Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People Ilmi Umerov as torture.

The Minister announced this at a press briefing, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

“In the context of what is happening in Donbas and temporarily occupied Crimea, where Russian authorities plan to hold illegitimate elections, where everyone who is pro-Ukraine activist and patriot like Ilmi Umerov is thrown into asylum in keeping with the Soviet principles and kept in conditions amounting to tortures… So I addressed the UN and the Council of Europe to recognise such actions as tortures,” Klimkin said.

During the talks with Minister of Foreign Affairs of Poland Witold Waszczykowski they discussed the interaction in respect of Ukraine’s European integration, and also Poland’s assistance in the implementation of the Association Agreement with the European Union.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, Umerov was released from the mental health clinic September 7.
