Hate Speech in the Media Landscape of Crimea: research

The Crimean Human Rights Group and the Human Rights Information Centre present to your attention the Information and Analytical Report on the Spread of Hate Speech on the Territory of the Crimean Peninsula (March 2014 – July 2017) “Hate Speech in the Media Landscape of Crimea“.

The authors of this research set out to document, systematize and demonstrate the scales of hate speech use in Crimea (using several time periods as an example for comparison) as well as reveal the main tendencies and ways of rousing hatred amid the ongoing international armed conflict on this territory.

The Report presents the outcome of documenting and classifying facts on the use of hate speech on the territory of the occupied Autonomous Republic of Crimea and city of Sevastopol from April 2014 to July 2017.

The Report uses material from mass media that have been disseminated in the territory of Crimea since the occupation of the peninsula by the Russian Federation, as well as information from open sources, including information resources from the authorities of Ukraine, Russian Federation and Crimean de-facto authorities, Crimean Human Rights Group and Human Rights Information Centre.
