Covid-19: Mortality anti-record recorded in occupied Crimea
Over the past three weeks, the death rate has risen by 62%
“This week we have an anti-record. We have seen a significant increase in mortality compared to the previous two. The trend continues, over the past three weeks, the death rate has increased by 62%,” the statement reads.
According to the Crimean “Ministry of Health”, seven patients have died from coronavirus over the past day, and in total during the pandemic – 1,559. During the day, 335 new cases of Covid-19 were recorded in Crimea.
At the same time, the data of the Russian authorities in Crimea and Sevastopol on the incidence of coronavirus have not been confirmed by international organizations and other independent sources. Human rights activists argue that these statistics are significantly underestimated, since they do not reflect many important factors, including infection in the ranks of the Russian military and special services.
Meanwhile, the Russian Federation has deployed potential nuclear weapons in the occupied Crimea and continues to develop military infrastructure. First Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Emine Dzhaparova stated this at the ‘Ukraine 30’ forum.
“Russia is actively developing the Crimean military infrastructure for its nuclear weapons. It is reconstructing the infrastructure of Soviet-era nuclear warheads. Potential nuclear weapons’ carriers have already been deployed on the peninsula,” she said.
