In the Russian-occupied Crimea, the security forces and public utilities are trying to remove the Ukrainian flag from the wires, the Vice-President of the World Congress of Crimean Tatars Lenur Islyamov informed on his Facebook page.

“I grew up in a place where the Crimean Tatars in exile hung flags on electric wires for the first time.

I have for life remembered the feeling of pride for the fearlessness of my people.

The Soviet repressive machine has failed to break my people, the "Russian" one will all the more not be able to!” Islyamov wrote.

Previously QHA reported that in the occupied Sevastopol, a patriotic action was held on the occasion of the Day of the Flag of Ukraine.
