"One of the Crimean Tatars doused himself in the fuming liquid, however, the people around him could operatively to extinguish his burning clothes. Before the arson, a man claimed that he commits the self-immolation as the protest against authorities arbitrarily," the message said.
It is noted that the citizens of "protest glade" "Strilkova" who protested against the construction of the fence came to the Simferopol City Administration controlled by Kremlin and demanded the meeting with the authorities.
It is reported that the authorities of Crimea controlled by Russia plan to build new district 'Crimean Rose" for 9,000 people instead of the "protest glade" "Strilkova". It is also planned to build the schools, kindergartens, sport complexes and shops. Now, mostly the returnees live there.
As we reported Biyuk-Karasu river, one of the largest ones in the occupied Crimea, dried out because of the severe drought there. The creekbed next to Karasivka village is completely dry; due to that, Taiganske and Bilohirske reservoirs are empty now. The water from Biyuk-Karasu was the main source for them.
Also, it was reported that before the occupation by Russia, Ukrainian Crimea boasted a lot of green cover; however, these areas have been severely decreasing since then.
