The Permanent Representative of the Ukrainian President in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, Tamila Tasheva, reported the information.

As of September 22, 2023, the Russian-installed "courts" in Crimea had conducted 514 administrative proceedings under the charge of "discrediting the Russian army," and in 435 of these cases, individuals were unjustly fined between RUB 30,000 and 50,000.

Tasheva stated that Russian-appointed authorities deem it acceptable to impose fines, incarceration, and force individuals to publicly apologize to Russian leader Vladimir Putin and the Russian army for expressing support for Ukraine's stance and armed forces. These punitive measures for speaking the truth are only bolstering pro-Ukrainian sentiments, and the resistance movement is evolving and intensifying as a result.

According to her, the residents of the occupied Crimea bravely oppose the symbols of Russia, call for the rapid arrival of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, and publicly express their opinion that the occupiers have no place in Crimea. 

"Instead, Russians are extremely afraid of blue and yellow colors, tattoos in the form of Ukrainian state symbols, Ukrainian songs, freedom of thought and the "Glory to Ukraine" greeting. Resistance movements have been activated and are resisting with might and main: Crimean Fighting Seagulls, Yellow Ribbon, Evil Nymph, Atesh, Movement 1918, and some activists and guerrillas who hang pro-Ukrainian posters and blue and yellow ribbons in public places. Members of the movements record the crimes of the occupiers and the movement of enemy equipment, deface Russian symbols and show what crimes Russia is actually committing in the occupied Crimea," the presidential representative emphasized.

  • The Atesh movement has reported that the majority of personnel in the self-proclaimed authorities of Crimea, which is currently under occupation, have shifted to remote work as a precautionary measure against potential Ukrainian attacks.
  • Russian troops are planning to remove Ukrainian museum exhibits from the temporarily occupied Sevastopol under the guise of evacuation.
