Occupation "prosecutor's office" of Crimea began to check the members of the Ukrainian Cultural Center, as well as the library of Simferopol, where the activists of the center hold events. This is reported by "Crimea. Realiy."

As the newspaper informs, the participant of the center Olga Pavlenko told about the checks at the meeting of the "Crimean solidarity".

"The prosecutors inspect the library where we were engaged in embroidering. Imagine, only in embroidering!" said Pavlenko.

Also, activists said that because of the pressure of Russian law enforcement agencies, the printing firms of the annexed peninsula refused to print the newspaper "Crimean Teren", which is published by the Ukrainian Cultural Center.

It is reported that Russian law enforcers distributed letters to print offices, in which the newspaper was listed as extremist materials.

The activists note that the first experimental issue of the newspaper was published on August 26 in two languages, Ukrainian and Russian, and contained materials on entering Ukrainian mainland universities, on blocking Internet resources in Crimea, as well as studies by historian Leonid Kuzmin on Ukrainian lands and fragments of speech of Crimean political prisoner Volodymyr Balukh.
