The prosecutor's office of Crimea is investigating the forced relocation of civilian population of annexed peninsula to Russian territory and changing demographic situation in Crimea. This was announced by Prosecutor of Crimea Gunduz Mamedov in his interview to Ukrainian News.
According to Mamedov, collected evidence can be added to the case to International Criminal Court in the Hague, if Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs will submit an application.
"We have received the appeal of Ukrainian MP Mustafa Dzhemilev on the fact of changing the demographic situation in the Crimea peninsula. In addition, we conducted media monitoring, and in numerous publications noted the indicated evidences of forced relocation of our citizens from the territory of the peninsula. Simultaneously, this also applies to our citizens who are in Crimean prison - they are transferred to serve their sentences in prisons on the territory of Russian Federation.
Regarding the forced relocation of our citizens, the prosecutor's office of Crimea registered criminal proceeding and conducts investigative measures ", Mamedov said.
