The occupiers in Crimea try to heroize their soldiers who were liquidated in the war in Ukraine in order to militarize society on the peninsula.
This was stated by the Chairman of the Board of the Crimean Tatar Resource Center, Eskender Bariyev, on Public Radio.
"Russians on the peninsula heroize the Crimeans who were liquidated by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, name streets, squares, parks etc. in Crimea after them. They constantly come up with new poems that are broadcast there on the radio. Children study these poems, older children write letters to the Russian military, and more older children learn to shoot. This is how Russians militarize society," he said.
