star this property answer text <p>The UK was one of the first countries to condemn President Putin's decision to sign a decree making it easier for Ukrainian citizens living in non-government controlled areas of eastern Ukraine to receive Russian passports. In a Foreign and Commonwealth Office statement, we made clear that rather than creating further obstacles to the reintegration of these communities into Ukraine, Russia should focus on implementing the Minsk Agreements in full. We also challenged Russia on this directly at the UN Security Council on 25 April, when the UK also expressed our support for Ukraine's sovereignty. This step by President Putin is the latest in a pattern of Russian behaviour aimed at threatening Ukraine's security and sovereignty and undermining its territorial integrity. The Foreign Secretary continues to discuss these issues with international partners. As the Prime Minister reiterated in a telephone call with President-elect Zelenskiy on 23 April, the UK fully supports Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity. She also expressed our willingness to increase our already deep partnership with Ukraine across a range of areas, including security.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK is concerned about restrictions on media freedom in Belarus. We consistently raise our concerns about media freedom as part of ongoing discussions with Belarusian counterparts on human rights and democracy. UK officials last raised concerns in a meeting with the Belarusian Ambassador on 3 April and stressed the importance of a free media with the Belarusian Deputy Foreign Minister on 17 April. Our Embassy in Minsk is monitoring the situation of the independent television channel, Belsat, following the search by Belarusian law enforcement officers. The UK continues to support a number of projects to promote and develop independent media in Belarus.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We are deeply concerned by ongoing reports of human rights abuses against the Crimean Tatar community. The Foreign Secretary has not made direct representations to the Russian Ambassador in London but has publicly condemned Russian human rights abuses in Crimea. Most recently, he co-signed an op-ed with EU partners on 27 February in which he criticised Russia's treatment of the Tatar community, and, in a statement to mark the fifth anniversary of Russia's illegal annexation of Crimea, condemned Russia's continued pattern of human rights violations in the peninsula and called for the release of all Ukrainian political prisoners being held by Russia. The UK supports the work of the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine, which works to reduce violations by strengthening the field presence of human rights monitors and reporting on the situation. In coordination with international partners, we continue to raise our concerns in international fora, including the UN, OSCE and NATO.</p>

star this property answer text <p>​The UK is concerned about restrictions on media freedom in Belarus, including the amendments introduced to Belarus' media laws on 1 December. Our Ambassador in Minsk raised these issues with the Belarusian Deputy Foreign Minister in a meeting on 19 February 2019. Our Embassy subsequently attended the trial of the editor of the independent online media outlet, tut.by. The UK also joined EU partners in raising the issue of media freedom during the EU-Belarus Coordination meeting on 12-13 December 2018. The UK continues to support a number of projects to promote and develop independent media in Belarus.</p> more like this
