SIMFEROPOL/AQMESCIT (QHA) -

Russia is carrying out a policy of the second occupation of Crimea. The residents of Central Russia, including military families, began resettling in annexed Crimea.

According to Georgy Logvinsky, Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Committee for Human Rights, National Minorities and International Relations, and Mustafa Jemilev, a member of the Committee, a lot of violations of the Geneva Convention are recorded on the peninsula.

Mustafa Jemilev voiced an opinion that Russian policy is now almost the same as it was during the first occupation of Crimea.

“They created the conditions when the indigenous people had to leave the territory of Crimea. At the same time, they resettled people from the interior of Russia in Crimea,” he said.

The people from Tula, Arkhangelsk and Astrakhan are moving to Crimea. They are provided with plots of land, grants and financial aid for housing construction.
