Occupiers close beaches, building fortifications in Crimea

The Russian occupation authorities in Crimea decided to "cancel" this year's beach season and massively close beaches on the peninsula.

"Swimming will be prohibited in the villages of Shtormove and Popivka in the west of Saky district of Crimea on the coast of the Black Sea and Lake Donuzlav," the Information Resistance group posted on Telegram.

In addition, swimming in other lakes will not be allowed.

In particular, the decision to close the beaches was adopted by the occupation "administration" of the Shtormove village council.

It is noted that the Russians turn beaches into a line of defense this year. Previously, dozens of kilometers of trenches were dug on them and artillery was placed in Crimea. The enemy takes such steps ahead of the expected counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
