An improvised action in support of Ukraine and the Crimean Tatar people took place in St. Petersburg, Russia. A resident of St. Petersburg Crimean Tatar activist Asan Mumdzhi informed on the details of the event on his page in the social network Facebook.

“How it was: May the First in St. Petersburg. Ilmi, Dilyar and also me somewhere as well. Yana Turbova is holding the banner. An MP Milonov circles around like a vulture. He tried five times to wrest the banner from Yana, but she, with one hand in a cast, did not give it to him. Well, the degree of an associate professor is not without reason,” Asan Mumdzhi shares with his followers.

The inscriptions on the T-shirts of the participants of the action said "Crimea is not mine", "Recognition of the Mejlis as an extremist organization is fascism!", "Price of the Crimea is self-isolation of the Russian Federation", "Crimea is Ukraine" clearly indicate the pro-Ukrainian position of the inhabitants of St. Petersburg. They were not frightened by the notorious repressive machine of the Russian Federation, threats of imprisonment and openly and honestly uphold their own civil position.

At the same time, the participants of the action are not even embarrassed by the Russian policeman filming of Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar flags.
