The authorities ordered to engage as many as possible participants in the holiday, recruiting those from schools and state-financed organizations – so as to create an image for the media to cover it as a massive event.

“On May 3, the puppet government of the temporarily occupied Crimea will hold Hidirlez, the national and religious holiday of the Crimean Tatars. The allotments were sent to schools, universities and other state-financed organizations, Chubarov said.
