The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) states that 10 persons are still missing in the Russia-annexed Crimea since 2014.

This is said in a report issued by the OHCHR entitled Situation of human rights in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol (Ukraine), Ukrainian News Agency reports.

In particular, the report stated that since the beginning of the occupation of Crimea by Russian authorities, dozens of people had been kidnapped/gone missing most of whom were released several hours or days later by kidnappers, but some still remained missing.

The report dated most of the forceful disappearances back to March 2014 when minimum 21 persons were kidnapped in the occupied by Russia Crimea.

As Ukrainian News earlier reported, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that over 400 people were considered missing in the area of the antiterrorist operation.
