New partisan movement emerges in Crimea

Another pro-Ukrainian partisan movement appeared in the occupied Crimea. The 1918 association of activists collects information about the Russian military, as well as conducts information activities, the Crimean Tatar Resource Center reported.

“[Activists] place pro-Ukrainian graffiti and flyers on the streets of Sevastopol, Simferopol, Bakhchysarai and Kerch, and also engage in subversive activities,” the resource center added.

The association chose a symbolic date for the name of the movement. In April 1918, the army of the Ukrainian People’s Republic commanded by Colonel Petro Bolbochan liberated Crimea from the Bolsheviks.

“In Crimea, they are afraid of April 22, 1918,” the partisans emphasized.

Previously, Ukraine’s intelligence reported that opposition to the Russian occupiers on the part of the pro-Ukrainian civilian population is growing in the temporarily occupied Crimea. Russian military facilities are systematically attacked with so-called “Molotov cocktails”. Meanwhile, Crimean Tatars in the temporarily occupied Crimea form an armed resistance movement to help the Ukrainian military, one of the leaders of the Crimean Tatar national movement, Mustafa Dzhemilev, said.

The Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people called on the occupied Crimea population to prepare for war on the peninsula, in particular, to start planning for their personal security and safety.
