Occupation “court” in Crimea considers more than 700 illegal cases against Crimeans for pro-Ukrainian position, – Tamila Tasheva

In the occupied Crimea, Russia is increasing pressure on people for their pro-Ukrainian position.

This was stated by the Permanent Representative of the President of Ukraine in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea during the opening of the Second Black Sea Security Conference of the International Crimea Platform.

“Ukrainian citizens in Crimea are being persecuted for the so-called “discrediting of the Russian armed forces”. In March 2024, 737 illegal cases were already known to be pending in Russian courts.
