Independent professional journalism is almost destroyed by Russian occupation authorities in Crimea, Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Dzhemilev informed on Facebook.

‘Crimean Tatar and Ukrainian mass media are suffering the most from pressure from the Russian Federation. Thus, we urge everyone working under pressure from occupation authorities to come together’, - Dzhemilev said.

The Russian Federation occupied Crimea in 2014. Ukraine’s Parliament officially declared February 20, 2014 the start of temporary occupation of the peninsula by Russia. Key international organizations condemn Russia’s actions and call annexation and occupation of Crimea illegal. Later a round of economic sanctions has been imposed on the Russian Federation.
