On 9 November 2020 the experts of the ‘Association of Reintegration of Crimea’ took part in a ‘Supplementary Human Dimension Meeting on Freedom of Religion or Belief’, arranged by the OSCE. This Meeting brought together human rights organizations from all across the world, including Academy of European Law, American Bar Association, Conference of European Churches, Crimean Human Rights Group, Crimean Tatar Resource Center, European Humanist Federation, Information Group on Crimes against the Person, International Association for Religious Freedom, US Holocaust Memorial Museum, Center for Civil Liberties and many other actors.

Dr. Oleksii Plotnikov, the expert of the Association, brought the attention of the delegates to the religious component in persecution of Crimean Tatars by the Russian occupational authorities in Crimea. He underlined that this religious persecution is a part of a systematic and wide-scale campaign of cultural erasure of the indigenous people of Crimea, the element of racial discrimination of Crimean Tatars by Russian de-facto authorities.
