Yellow Ribbon activists handed letters to MEPs that detailed acts of resistance in Crimea
Members of the European Parliament received letters from Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar officials detailing their opposition to the Russian occupiers in Crimea as well as tickets for upcoming train trips to the liberated peninsula from Yellow Ribbon movement activists. This is indicated in the press statement provided by the resistance movement’s leaders to Ukrinform.
“Due to ongoing Russian propaganda in Europe, Europeans are remarkably unaware of the Crimean resistance. Over 200 people from Crimea are in Russian captivity, according to official figures. Not only for Ukrainians but also for Crimeans, for whom the peninsula serves as their sole residence, the support of MEPs is crucial. The founders of Yellow Ribbon hoped that the letters delivered by our movement’s representatives to European MPs in Brussels would serve as a strong voice for the Crimean resistance that would be heard not only by diplomats but also by common European citizens,” the founders of Yellow Ribbon note.
