Crimean authorities have restricted conducting of mass events in Crimea’s capital Simferopol, naming only 4 areas, where mass gathering are allowed. This means that central Lenina square which used to be the main arena for mass events, gathering tens of thousands of people, now is prohibited to host mass gathering.
According to Crimean human rights activists, the authorities just “banned people from holding mass events in convenient places”.
“Following decree restricts the right of Crimeans to hold peaceful mass events. Restriction of places where conducting of mass events is allowed deprives us from the right to gather people in a place where attention to a problem should be paid”- activists say.
To recall, in May, after Crimea’s unification with Russia, the authorities banned all the mass gatherings up till June 6. The decree was signed on May 16, the first day of remembrance ceremonies and events marking the seventieth anniversary of the Deportation of the entire Crimean Tatar People in May 1944.
The decree claimed that the ban was due to events in the South-East of Ukraine and stated that “in order to prevent possible provocation by extremists able to get into the Crimea, to avoid disruption to the tourist season in the Crimea, mass events are banned on the territory of the republic of the Crimea until June 6, 2014”.
