Twenty three Ukrainians were expelled from the occupied Crimea because of allegedly "illegal labor activity commited by a foreign citizen or a stateless person", the so-called border department of the Federal Security Service of Russia in the Crimea reported.
The decision to expel Ukrainians was made by the Kremlin-controlled Yevpatoria City Court, which prohibited them from entering the occupied peninsula.
