The Prosecutor's Office of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol informed the International Criminal Court about the persecution of journalists in Crimea.

The head of the Prosecutor's Office of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, Igor Ponochovny, said this on February 26 during a telethon to the Day of Resistance to the Occupation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol, Ukrinform reported.

"Only yesterday, together with the Office of the Prosecutor General and the Ukrainian Helsinki Human Rights Union, we sent another notice to the International Criminal Court about the persecution of journalists in Crimea during the occupation," Ponochovny said.

According to him, from March 1, another information report is to be prepared on the harassment of persons who were serving sentences in the Crimea at the time of occupation.

We will remind, on February 26 Ukraine marks Day of resistance of occupation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol.

On this day in Simferopol, a mass rally organized by the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people took place in front of the Crimean parliament building protesting against occupation of Crimea.
