The military registration offices of the annexed Crimea unlawfully called more than 1,7 thousand Crimeans in the Russian Armed Forces for military service. This was reported by the press service of the Southern Military District of the Russian Defense Ministry, the Dzerkalo Tyzhnia informs.

In accordance with the UN resolution on human rights in the occupied Crimea, it's  prohibited to call the inhabitants of the Ukrainian peninsula to the Russian armed forces, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said earlier.

"I want to emphasize separately that the resolution insists on banning conscription into the armed forces of the occupying country in the occupied territory in accordance with international law," Klimkin said.

As of Friday, June 23, illegally called "servicemen" arrived at the place of service.

At the same time, the Russian Defense Ministry noted that more than 1.7 million new recruits arrived in the Black Sea Fleet, which is almost 65% of the total number of conscripts.
