Population of Crimea increased by one million due to migration from Russia during occupation – expert

During Russia’s occupation of Crimea, population growth on the peninsula has amounted to 1 million people due to migration from Russia.

“Instead of the pre-war permanent population of the Crimean peninsula of 2,350,504 people, we are currently dealing with a de facto population of at least 3,100,000 people. During the years of occupation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, the existing population of the peninsula has grown by at least 1 million people due to migration from the Russian Federation,” Andrii Klymenko, head of the Monitoring Group of the Institute for Black Sea Strategic Studies, posted on Facebook, Ukrinform reports.

According to him, already more than 1 million “colonizers” account for 2 million “pre-war” Crimeans, remaining out of almost 2.4 million people.

According to the expert, the “colonizers” will make up the vast majority of the population in the occupied Crimea in a few years.

“This is the policy of the Russian Federation. “Migration weapons” and socio-cultural alteration of the population in the process of colonization of new territories by the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union have a long history. Modern Russia uses these patterns from historical experience,” Klymenko explained.

In accordance with the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, the transfer by the Occupying Power of parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies is a war crime.

  • Invasion, occupation, genocide and race replacement. Standard Russian tools. Czarism, communism and now fascism under fuhrer putler; they change their system of government periodically, but nothing else changes.

    The Ruskie filth will cause the fragile Crimean ecosystem to collapse one day soon. It is already on life support. We’ll see how things will look like there when land, air and seawater is completely trashed.
