Management of international children center "Artek" ordered to demolish the ancient Muslim cemetery "Gurzuf-Aziz."
“The cemetery was untouched during the USSR, and under Ukraine. Previously, when it was not overgrown, plates with Arabic script were visible there. A lot of obtusifolious pistachios listed in the Red Book has grown at the cemetery. A Muslim saint is buried here. And they want to demolish all this,” local activist Natalya Kutsenko wrote on her page in the social networks.
According to the builders, the occupiers plan to build a large dormitory for the new camp "Sunny" (Solnechny) on the site of an ancient Muslim burial.
Outraged Gurzuf residents have already started to collect signatures under the statement to the police about the actions of "Artek" management .
