German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier has called for groups of the Council of Europe to be granted continuous access to enable them to monitor the human rights situation in the Crimea.

Steinmeier made the call in a speech at a session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg (France) on Thursday, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

According to Steinmeier, this applies not only to the Crimea, but also to South Ossetia, Abkhazia, Transdniestria, and Nagorno-Karabakh.

Steinmeier praised the Council of Europe’s Human Rights Commissioner of Nils Muiznieks’ efforts to resolve the conflict in Ukraine and noted that the Council of Europe’s action plan is facilitating the process of democratic reforms in Ukraine.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the United Nations Human Rights Council has accused the Russian authorities of persecuting dissidents in the Russia-annexed Crimea under the pretext of fighting extremism.

The Ukrainian Foreign Affairs Ministry has called on the international community to make the necessary efforts to protect the Crimean Tatar people from discrimination and persecution by the Russian authorities.
