Prosecutor's Office of Autonomous Republic of Crimea suspects "Head of Council of Ministers of Republic of Crimea" and "Chairman of Supreme Council of Republic of Crimea" in illegal acquisition of Masandra, Artek and Chornomornaftogaz companies. Press department of Prosecutor General's Office reported that on February 25.

Law enforcers found out that these actions contradict the Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War; the document bans ab occupant country from acquiring public property in the occupied territory.

Thus, the local "government" decided to nationalize state property, and it is considered illegal. Specifically, the "authorities" grabbed the property that belongs to Ukraine's state-owned assets that are based in Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol (which is a separate unit of subordination, apart from Crimea).
