Україна / Ukraine ^ | 5-10-2014 3:00 a.m.

"Improvement in Russian" in the Crimea resulted in disruption of the holiday season, a huge queue at any institution, exchange rate shocks and massive purchase of objects people in or near the head of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov.

Tourists and journalists on the peninsula is hard to find, but crammed with hotels and apartments: Holiday -bed hospital was chosen by members of the FSB and Russian officials. Travel agencies say that until October to find a free room at a local hotel difficult.

"We no longer work with local hotels to October, all sorts of goals FSBshnikami and bureaucrats who came to teach us how to live in Russian," - told reporters at a travel agency.

Former Ukrainian police in Crimea alone on the street do not produce, they walk in pairs with the Russian police. Press - newspapers, magazines, television channels - only Russian.

Censorship imposed throughout. Even holiday birthday of Taras Shevchenko, Russian officials twisted so that there was not a word about the Ukrainian poet.

In every mosque sits and listens attentively FSBshnik what pray Crimeans. "Tail " for a Russian spy and crew noticed " Grosh " and journalists all night robbed. Police, who arrived on a call already knew that things were journalists certificate channel 1 +1, and very long questioned where cameras and cameras.

Private life krymchanina now held in queues: in passport offices, immigration services, Beauty salons - kilometer queue. To simply ask a question should not stand for one day. The big problem with the removal of funds from the cards. ATMs are not working, and banks need to stand in line and fill out a bunch of documents, if you make at least one error in form - do not give money.

Exchange Rates jump almost every hour. Russia has promised this year, three million tourists, but holiday season never opened. In spas this year - low season. On the beaches, which was not there before where the apple fall, sleeping homeless. Instead of tourist attractions in the center of Yalta collect money for a referendum for Ukrainian regions.

Mainly on tourism in Crimea appointed Ruslan Baysarov. This was announced by Ramzan Kadyrov himself on social network page. Chechen businessman plans to redeem the southern coast of Crimea and build there own resort. But money from tourists resorts in future not for the pockets of Crimeans. Chechen businessmen revenue sharing with local not collected.

Earn at least Crimeans products now will be difficult. Newly minted Russian leaders already scare tax provision of housing for rent. It is at this earned for the whole year residents of Crimea in the holiday season. Prices have soared on the peninsula at times.

Dokrichatsya "race." Well, welcome to Mordor.

Who could have thought that ‘tyrant’ Putin is unable to convince Russian businesses to participate in Crimea because said companies are fearing sanctions? So much for infamous Russian ‘totalitarism’.

If you are such a fool to believe that Crimeans want to be Ukrainians, not Russians, perhaps you will take note of recent actions by Ukraine to make war not on the government of Crimea, but on the people:

The Ukrainian-based banks have all closed, essentially stealing all deposits.

The Ukrainian government is damming a canal to cut off water to destroy Crimean crops and cause thirst and disease.

These actions don’t hurt Russia... other than the cost Russia is willing to pay to aid their countryfolk in Crimea. They are attacks against the people of Crimea.

Shame on you! I am no fool! Nor, did I appreciate your name-calling using ‘private’ mail reply.

Moscow’s ‘security and prosperity’ psy-ops orpropaganda doesn’t grow beans! Russia is NOW exerting control over the people of Crimea.
Are you aware HOW MANY Crimean refugees are coming to Kiev? They are being free food, clothes, housing because they have to leave with the clothes on their back & no passports!

PLEASE check your facts:

2- Crimea is not paying for the water the peninsula is consuming and now has a debt of nearly $200,000! or Crimea is stealing Ukraine water: more than four million cubic meters worth!
3- Ukrainian DTEK energy company now carries growing energy debt for Crimea of $74.1 million!
4- BTW, Russia “suggested” that the owner of DTEK Rinat Akhmetov sell his business, but so far he refused.

1. The Russian banks are back open; the delay was purely because of the need to switch currency. Note the date: 4-21. The Kiev banks, however, are still closed, and people are being told they won’t be reopening.

2 OMG! A debt of $200,000! Check you own facts: Crimea tried to pay the money. Once again: your propaganda is based on an outdated story.

3. Ukraine closes all the banks, effectively seizing all assets, then complains when their energy company finds that the victims are slow paying their bills? So Ukraine energy is NINETEEN BILLION DOLLARS in debt for unpaid gas bills, but they’re going to shut off the power because of $70 million debt? I’m at a complete and utter lack of words for the duplicity and stupidity represented.

4. So? That would be the normal thing to do since Ukraine is isolating Crimea.

Sorry, you don’t seem to be at a loss for offensive verbiage! Do not feel so badly, it is hard for anyone, you or I, to keep pace.

More complete info to help clarify:
Measures have been taken to compensate the clients of four Ukrainian banks which RUSSIA’S NATIONAL BANK ORDERED TO CLOSE [NOTE THE DATE: 21 April]

This included PrivatBank, where many of Crimea’s 2.4 million residents receive their pensions and salaries and had operated 339 branches with 790,000 private clients in Crimea.

Your info is outdated: May 8th, the new Protection Fund for Crimean Depositors began operating out of Privatbank offices in Simferopol, taking applications to compensate account-holders for deposits.

2. OMG! Prior to Russian occupation people paid electric/water bill electronically!

Mustafayev is a Crimean Tatar, part of an ethnic group that makes up about 15% of the population, most of whom boycotted the referendum because it did not include an option to remain part of Ukraine.

“I expected these problems. It’s common sense,” Mustafayev said. “We needed to understand that we were running into a lot of problems that will negatively affect our livelihood. Food prices are rising, and they haven’t closed the [Ukrainian] border yet.”

“Pensions will double [as Russian citizen,] but food prices will double as well, so it won’t make a difference!” as one Crimean put it,sSoviet times have come back, so of course people will say they are satisfied.”
When asked to elaborate, he answered with this old saying: “My tongue is my enemy.”

I’m at a complete and utter lack of words for the duplicity and stupidity represented.

Dangus: I apologize for the last line.

I had copied your post to respond to your comments & inadvertently failed to delete your comment: “I’m at a complete and utter lack of words for the duplicity and stupidity represented.”
