According to one of the activists Emil Mustafaev (Krasnogvardeiskoe region of Crimea), people managed to collect only 150,000 rubles.

“We have collected 150,000 rubles, 700,000 more is needed. Still the problem is that two-month deadline to pay the fines was not met, so, according to Russian legislation, the sum will be doubled”- Mustafaev said.
