Photo exhibition "Abroad" representing the life of the Crimean Tatar people in the occupied Crimea was opened in the central library of San Francisco, the press service of the Consulate General of Ukraine in San Francisco reported.
During two months, the library will host the exposition of 20 photographs by a Crimean Tatar photographer, Emine Ziyatdinova.
“The purpose of this event in San Francisco, which is a multinational and ethno-confessional city, and in which the Charter of the United Nations was signed on 06.26. 1945, is to draw the attention of the international community in general and the American community in particular to gross and systematic violations of the fundamental human rights and freedoms in the Crimea by the Russian occupation authorities," reads the message.
The aim of the exhibition is also to show that "mass violations in the occupied peninsula will not go unnoticed, and the actions of the occupation authorities will not go unpunished."
Earlier, on July 9, the Committee on Democracy, Human Rights and Humanitarian Affairs of the OSCE PA supported the Ukrainian draft resolution on human rights violations in the annexed Crimea. According to the Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov, 35 people voted for the resolution, nine people opposed, and seven abstained from voting.
