Dome Crimean Tatars have gone into hiding.
Military mobilization recently announced by Russian President Vladimir Putin continues in Crimea. People are stopped on the streets and served draft summons regardless of age or past military experience, as Mustafa Dzhemiliev, the People’s Deputy and the leaders of the Crimean Tatar nation, said during the all-Ukrainian telethon.
"Seems like there are no clear order to ban exit from Crimea to male population. However, their cars are parked on the street and they are catching people to serve the draft summons. The streets are engulfed in the “dead silence”, the Deputy said.
According to him, Simferopol is one of the few places, where some men still rarely walk the streets, while smaller towns, especially those with high percentage of Crimean Tatar population, are almost empty.
"There are woman or young children, but no adult men are seen on the streets. According to our reports, some of them are hiding in the forests or in the mountains”, Mustafa Dzhemiliev added.
According to the Deputy, the invaders don’t care about age or health condition of potential recruits.
"They just grab everyone. They definitely attempt to draft the higher share of Crimean Tatars. This is a hidden form of ethnic cleansing, where they want to get rid of the part of population capable of resistance”, Mustafa Dzhemiliev stressed.
