In February 2018, a large information campaign dedicated to the annexation of the Crimea will be launched to the anniversary of the occupation of the Ukrainian peninsula, the First Deputy Minister of information policy Emine Dzhaparova told in an interview with QHA.

According to her, Ministry of Information Policy of Ukraine is planning a great communication campaign.

“Now the content of the communication campaign is being developed. As part of the campaign "Crimea is Ukraine", we hold such actions every year. For example, two years ago we shot the film "Crimea.Resistance". That is, we speak not only about the occupation, but also about the resistance, which explains why these repressions take place. The strategy of the occupiers boils down to make people come to terms with it and stop resisting," she said.

Dzhaparova also noted the scale of Russian propaganda about the Crimea. According to her, more than 3 thousand legislative acts devoted to the annexation of the Crimea were adopted in Russia.

“Starting from the currency and ending with the cinematography, they actively propagandize the Russian status of the Crimea. They shoot films in the Crimea, they conduct propaganda through sports," she said.

Speaking about the billboards dedicated to the Crimean Tatar activist Emir Usein-Kuku, she noted that this action was held with the financial support of the Ministry of Information Policy. The banners are calling to write letters to the unlawfully detained Crimean Tatar activist Emir-Usein Kuku.

“140 such billboards are located throughout Ukraine. 40 in Kyiv, and the rest in all cities-millionaires.”

Earlier, the international human rights organization Amnesty International called for the participation in the marathon of writing letters in support of the Crimean political prisoner Emir-Usein Kuku.

On the eve of the New Year it became known that in the pre-trial detention facility of the Krasnodar Territory, RF, Emir-Usein Kuku and Vadim Siruk were beaten and hounded.
