October 18, the actions of the initiative "Strategy-18" in defense of the rights of the Crimean Tatars in the occupied Crimea are expected in a number of cities of the Russian Federation, according to the organizers of events.
“Arrests and searches, police raids, disappearance of people occur with maniacal regularity in Bakhchysarai. The reason for the persecution was the peaceful non-violent resistance of the Crimean Tatar people to the annexation of the peninsula by Russian security forces.”
Participants in the rally hope that sooner or later the Russians will stop believing the state propaganda of the Russian regime, which is attempting to expose the Crimean Tatars as bloodthirsty terrorists.
“State propaganda of the Russian regime is making every effort to label the Crimean Tatar people as bloodthirsty terrorists. But the free world does not believe in these filthy lies. We hope that sooner or later most Russians will not believe in those lies either.”
Reference: November 18, an unlimited action began 2016 in St. Petersburg aiming to support the Crimean Tatars in the format of single pickets "Strategy-18".
