The occupying power of the Russian Federation continues to amass its military presence in Crimea. Taking advantage of the difficult weather conditions on the peninsula, Russia, under the guise of assistance to eliminate the effects of floods, redeployed another 21,000 troops to Crimea.
“Under the pretext of eliminating the effects of floods, the aggressor redeployed about 21,000 special operations soldiers and 1,367 units of vehicles and special equipment to the peninsula. In addition, more than 31,000 rank and file and command staff of the armed forces of the occupying power are constantly stationed on the peninsula,” Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights Liudmyla Denisova posted on Telegram.
The Human Rights Commissioner also pointed out that the occupying power rolled out construction of a new regiment military camp for 300 servicepersons in the city of Feodosia.
At the same time, Denisova reminded that the international community had condemned the build-up of military presence in Crimea by adopting an urgent resolution of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly on 6 July 2021.
As a reminder, the large-scale destruction on the occupied peninsula was caused, in particular, by the mismanagement of the occupiers.
