Unknown people who call themselves “members of election commission” are seizing passports of Crimean citizens, mainly Crimean Tatars and don’t give them back.
Crimean resident, who wished to remain anonymous, has said this to QHA.
Impostors come to Crimean houses, ask people to show their passports, arguing that the passports are needed to prepare lists of voters for all-Crimean referendum, that to be conducted on March 16.
Simferopol city administration confirmed the information, noting they have already received phone calls from anxious Crimean citizens.
According to Simferopol city administration press-center, this is nothing but provocation.
Simferopol city administration press-office called on Crimeans not to give in the provocations, noting no one has the right to require passports.
