В Крыму преследуют участников Украинского культурного центра

Crimean printing houses refused to print the newspaper, which publishes the Ukrainian cultural center, referring to letters from law enforcement bodies of Russia.

Controlled by Russia, the so-called “the Crimean Prosecutor’s office” called to check the participants of the Ukrainian cultural centre, said the party Olga Pavlenko, Radio Liberty reports.

In addition, the “Prosecutor” came to check in the library of Simferopol, where the activists held their events.

“The prosecutors will check the library, where we was engaged in embroidering. Imagine, just embroidery!” – said Pavlenko.

Activists also said that printing houses refused to print the newspaper, which publishes the Ukrainian cultural center, referring to letters from law enforcement bodies of Russia, where the newspaper “Teren Krymskiy” in the Ukrainian language is called “extremist material”.

We remind that activists of the Ukrainian cultural center in the Crimea on 26 August 2017 presented the first experimental issue of the publication “Krimsky Teren” in Ukrainian and Russian languages.

The first issue was published instruction for entry into universities of mainland Ukraine, material on the blocking of Internet media in the Crimea, the fragments of the last words of the Crimean political prisoner Vladimir Baloga and historical study of Leonid Kuzmin about the Ukrainian lands.
