In the temporarily occupied Crimea, the Russian authorities issued 1.5 thousand summonses to the Crimean Tatars in just a few days. As the representative of the President in Crimea, Tamila Tasheva, reported on the air of the national telethon, full-scale mobilization of indigenous peoples is underway on the territory of the peninsula .
“Over the course of several days, fifteen thousand summonses were issued to Crimean Tatars. How it is done: in fact, such raids take place, when they (Russians – ed.) come to settlements where Crimean Tatars mostly live, or cities where they work in the markets, and distribute these summonses. There is no question of partial mobilization, because they don’t ask whether you were registered or if you had any illnesses. They take away absolutely everyone, including, I am told, older men who, in theory, should not be taken away – this is the 60+ category. In general, men from the age of 18 are taken to the war. First they are sent to the military commissariat, then quickly to the assembly. This is a terrible situation,” Tasheva said.
It is noted that the Russian Federation emphasizes the Crimean Tatars, trying to destroy the gene pool of the Crimean Tatar people.
“The Russian Federation closes for itself two such components here: one is sending to war and physical extermination. And the second component is the displacement of disloyal Crimean Tatars from the peninsula. We are actively monitoring the situation, and as far as we know, thousands of Crimean Tatars, including those with their families, are leaving the Crimean peninsula. Of course, they leave through the territory of the Russian Federation to countries where it is possible to arrive without a Russian foreign passport. The only possible ways are Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan, because you can come there with so-called internal passports,” Tasheva stated.
She also noted that according to eyewitnesses living in Crimea, such cities as Simferopol, Yalta, Sudak, and a number of other cities are simply devastated. The places where the Crimean Tatars opened shops are now empty, the streets are empty, there are no men there.
On September 21, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin announced in his video message to citizens about the partial mobilization of the population.
According to preliminary estimates by analysts, Crimean Tatars received about 90% of summonses in Crimea. At the same time, Crimean Tatars make up 13-15% of the population of the peninsula. Such scale of mobilization can lead to a hidden genocide of the Crimean Tatar people.
