Ukraine has simplified the entry procedure into Crimea for lawyers and human rights advocates

On Wednesday, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine amended the order of entry to the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine and exit from it, which simplified the mechanism for crossing the administrative border for human rights advocates and representatives of independent human rights missions, as reported by the Ministry of Temporary Occupied Territories of Ukraine.

The resolution states that in order to cross the administrative border with the temporarily occupied territory, the human rights advocates will be granted a special permit from this Ministry.

The resolution is intended to facilitate the legal protection provisions for those citizens whose rights had been violated by the authorities of the annexed Crimea.
