Twenty military exercises conducted by occupiers in Crimea over six months.

Over the first half of 2021, Russia conducted 20 military exercises in the occupied Crimea with the participation of 23,850 troops and more than 1,900 units of military equipment.

Such data of the Dom TV channel were voiced by Head of the Crimean Tatar Resource Center Eskender Bariyev, Ukrinform reports.

"According to our estimates (I do not claim that they are perfect, we may have missed something) during the reporting period, the Russian authorities conducted 20 military exercises in the occupied peninsula with 23,850 troops and more than 1,900 units of special combat equipment. Perhaps, there was more equipment, maybe there were more people. But the report reflects what we managed to record, we rely on our sources," Bariyev said.

He stressed that militarization should be linked to the situation with the rights of indigenous peoples.

"According to the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, the presence of armed contingents or military contingents in the territory inhabited by indigenous peoples must first and foremost be agreed with indigenous peoples, with their representative body. But in reality, the occupiers do not agree on this issue and also ban the representative body — the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people," the Head of the Crimean Tatar Resource Center continued.

Bariyev noted that information about violations in Crimea should be reported to all international platforms, to politicians of different countries.

"We need to talk about it systematically. We need to inform our partners and politicians of these countries. Because the parliaments of certain countries renew, new policies appear. These new politicians do not always have complete information. Therefore, we must systematically demonstrate, show information in the dynamics that human rights violations do not decrease but, on the contrary, new trends and new approaches emerge," he concluded.
