The Prosecutor General's Office of the russian federation has declared the activities of Ukrainian organization "Crimean Human Rights Group" (CHRG) as "undesirable."

This was reported by the organization on their Facebook page with reference to the russian department.

According to CHRG, their website has been blocked on the occupied peninsula since last year. Currently, access to the resource is closed at least in Simferopol, Sudak, Lenino, Kerch, Krasnoperekopsk and Bakhchisaray districts.

In 2020 and 2021, russia issued at least 20 decisions banning the distribution of the Crimean Human Rights Group's content "in the territory of the russian federation." All the publications were related to the illegal military conscription in the Crimea.

It will be recalled that the Crimean Human Rights Group (CHRG) is an initiative of human rights organizations representatives aimed at promoting the observance and protection of human rights in Crimea by providing wide publicity to human rights and international humanitarian law issues on the Crimean peninsula.

The Crimean Human Rights Group began its work in August 2015.
