Over the past few days, the Crimean occupation authorities have cut off the supply of power and water in many mosques in the annexed peninsula, the Crimean Tatar journalist Seitumer Seitumerov reported.

According to him, disconnection of utilities took place in various regions of the Crimea – in Sudak, Alushta, Yevpatoria, Bakhchysarai and Nizhny Novhorod regions.

Seitumer Seitumerov also published photos of the affected mosques with a question “Who is doing it, why and which is next?”

On April 15, Russian security forces in the Crimea detained Rustem Abilev, the imam of the mosque of the village Shturmove near Sevastopol. The FSB accused him of “calling for extremist activity”, after which the Sevastopol City Court arrested Abilev until June 10.
