Pro-Ukrainian movement is gaining momentum in Russian-occupied Crimea. The Russian occupying regime threatens to hold local residents criminally responsible for chanting what it refers to as "nationalist slogans and songs" in public.

Quote from Aksyonov: "Footage from public gatherings that have recently begun to be shared online shows people chanting pro-Ukrainian slogans and singing nationalist songs.

I believe that both the organisers and the participants of such gatherings have to be held  responsible and fired; other appropriate law enforcement measures should also be taken.

It would be more rational and logical for those who support the Ukrainian regime to leave [Crimea] for the country that they love so much."

Details: In his video address, Aksyonov clarified that he meant holding people criminally responsible for such actions. He said that residents of Russian-occupied Crimea will be identified based on the footage of the events and fired; their business will be shut down.

Earlier, videos of a wedding celebration in a restaurant in the Russian-occupied Bakhchisarai district of Crimea began to circulate on pro-Russian Telegram channels. In the video, wedding guests gleefully danced and sang along to the [Ukrainian] song Chervona Kalyna (Red Guelder Rose).
