The "march towards Crimea" rally is not going to take place on the original date, May 3. Refat Chubarov, the leader of the Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people reported that on Facebook.
"The new date of holding the international peaceful action "World against violence and occupation. March of Dignity" will be defined with the account of the epidemiological situation in Ukraine", Chubarov wrote.
He added that the headquarters of the event continues working in the remote connection mode and during local meetings.
Previously, Chubarov claimed that only coronavirus could affect the march - only that, and not even the criminal case that Russian investigators opened against him in the occupied Crimea.
During the event, the activists were going to enter the territory of Crimea across the administrative border.
Previously, Russian authorities of the annexed Crimea stopped to let people to Ukraine, across the border.
“The investigative authorities of the Investigative Committee of Russia in Crimea and Sevastopol city opened the criminal case against Chair of public association Mejlis of Crimean Tatar People Refat Chubarov who is charged with the organization of mass unrests involving violence,” the message said.
The Investigative Committee accuses Chubarov of ‘the organization of mass unrest near the building of the Supreme Council of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea".
