Crimea is getting sober from ‘Russian world’ in lack of money and total monitoring by special services.
Leader of Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Dzhemilev informed in UN that after one year people had changed their opinion about being part of Russia. If Referendum in Crimea was held these days only 20% of locals would want to be a part of Russia.
However, today even talks about free expression of one’s opinions are criminal article in law Russian Federation.
According to Kremlin’s order the so-called returning of Crimea can only be celebrated by mass concerts and festivals.
Journalists of local newspaper ‘Gorod’ attended celebration in Moscow and found out that patriotism in Russian capital has got very specific financial foundation – 300 rubles per capita.
The percentage of Crimean residents who are glad of their world being turned upside down is decreasing. The anniversary of becoming part of Russia was met with empty wallets and crazy prices.
The dreams of high pensions and wages turned out to be empty words. Salaries and pensions cannot keep up with growing prices. The roads to resorts overgrow without customers, railway doesn’t function, and the fields get dry without water from Dnipro River. The Kerch Bridge to join Crimea with Russia is still a chimera.
People are afraid to express their views in public, wearing of blue and yellow ribbons are enough to be detained by police. Locals had to receive Russian passports to preserve their work and give their children to school.
Under total monitoring and persecution Crimea is getting sober.
