Law enforcers state that the poor and the homeless come from the territory of Russia.
November 8, preventive measures were launched in the Crimean capital "to deal with road beggars."
“There a lot of them around in the streets. We are going to find out the channels they came from, and who supervises them,” said Sergei Nikitin, the Deputy Chief of the so-called Simferopol police.
Nikitin said that according to operative data, the poor in mass come from different regions of Russia.
Moreover the Head of the Kremlin-controlled administration of Simferopol Gennady Baharev stated that the number of homeless people in the city has also increased. According to him, construction of a shelter for the homeless in the Crimean capital remains an unsettled issue.
Earlier, it was reported that the occupying Russian authorities may decide to relocate a significant portion of the population of the Crimean peninsula. After all, the problem of water supply in the region has not been solved and it is growing worse, according to Michael Romashchenko, the Director of the Institute of Water Problems and Land Reclamation of Ukrainian Academy of Agrarian Sciences.
