An excerpt from the speech of the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, was broadcast on television in the Russian-occupied Crimea after Ukrainian hackers broke into the broadcasting system, the social organization Information Army of Ukraine reported. A patriotic video for the popular song “Ukraine – it’s you” was also broadcast.
At the beginning of the short film, there is a fragment of Volodymyr Zelensky’s speech, in which he says: “Let each of the Russian occupiers who took the road in Crimea remember: they will not find peace in this land.”
As informed on Saturday on Twitter by the social organization Informacyjne Wojska Ukraine, a patriotic clip for Tina Karol’s song “Ukraine – it’s you” was also shown on the broadcast, showing, among other things, the Ukrainian flag with the emblem of the Crimean Tatars launched into the air on balloons. At the end, Zelenskiy is shown again, saying: “Crimea is Ukraine! Glory to Ukraine!”.
Attacks on the occupied Crimea
The Crimean peninsula has been occupied by the Russians since 2014. There have been several attacks on Russian military targets in recent weeks.
The US Institute for War Studies (ISW) reported that Russian authorities are visibly tightening security measures in Crimea, which demonstrates growing concern about Ukrainian strikes in areas previously considered safe. In Sevastopol, the Russians created, among other things, checkpoints to search Ukrainian cars for fear of sabotage.
