Hateful graffiti were found spray-painted on the walls and roller blinds of the store owned by Crimean Tatars in the village of Kirovskoye on the morning of December 24, reports the press service of the Mejlis of Crimean Tatars.

The store’s owners did not make much of the graffiti thinking local teenagers were responsible for that. However, after being translated from English, the graffiti turned out to be hateful in nature, saying ‘Get out, scum’, ‘I hate you’, ‘God hates you all’, etc.

According to the local residents, this is not just a case of petty hooliganism but a deliberate attempt to incite interethnic hatred.
