Russia forcibly changes the demographic situation in the occupied Crimea. About 250,000 people from the temporarily occupied areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions and 300,000 Russians have been delivered to Crimea.

Commissioner of the President of Ukraine for Crimean Tatar People Mustafa Dzhemilev said this in an interview with Channel 5.

"Russia is grossly violating the Geneva Conventions on the inadmissibility of the forcible change in the demographic situation in the occupied territory by making the indigenous people flee the peninsula and populating it with the people loyal to Russian authorities. About 250,000 pro-Russian residents of the temporarily occupied areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions have been delivered to Crimea. Many of them are criminals. In addition, at least 250,000 people, or even 300,000 – 400,000 people, according to various estimates, have been delivered to the occupied Crimea from the Russian Federation," Dzhemilev said.

He stressed that such actions directly contradicted the requirements of the Geneva Conventions and were classified as the war crime.
