“Harassment and discrimination against Ukrainian nationals, Crimean Tatars, religious minorities, minorities in general and activists who opposed the March 16 ‘referendum’ have intensified,” reads the OHCHR report on Ukraine, which covers the period from June 8 until July 15, 2014.

The report says that NGOs have warned of a possible new wave of internally displaced persons (IDPs) from Crimea during the next few months, as new restrictions take effect and make people’s lives there untenable.

“This would include business people who were having serious difficulties with continuing to operate their businesses in Crimea; lecturers and teachers who fear they will be sacked at the beginning of the new academic year for holding Ukrainian nationality or because they are Crimean Tatars; and families with sons of military age whom they do not want to be called up for service in the Russian army,” the report reads.
