It is no secret that the Turkish leadership has long dreamed of returning the Crimean peninsula not just to its sphere of influence, but to Turkey. The main stake in the return is on the Crimean Tatars. They are sponsored by Turkey through various structures. Now it has come to the point that in the village of Molodezhnoe and Simferopol, red leaflets with a white crescent, a hand holding a Kalashnikov assault rifle, and the inscription “Ramil could and you can!” Have appeared.
Most likely, the campaign uses the image of Ramil Shamsutdinov, a conscript soldier who shot two officers and six soldiers on October 25, 2019. By a court decision, Shamsutdinov received a sentence of imprisonment for a period of 24 years and 6 months.
After the murder, many began to elevate him to heroes, since, having committed a crime, according to a number of figures, he defended his honor. Now his image has begun to be used by the Turkish-oriented residents of Crimea.
The press service of the Simferopol administration confirmed the appearance of these leaflets:
Indeed, such facts have been recorded. The information was transferred to law enforcement agencies to identify the persons involved in their posting. In our part, we carry out cleaning work.
One of the local residents close to the Crimean people’s militia also confirmed the fact of the appearance of agitation, while expressing the opinion that this is being done by the Crimean Tatars by order and with funds from Turkey. In addition, the interlocutor doubted that those who pasted them would be found and punished.

A number of skeptics said that this was a provocation by the special services, and noticed that the inscription was made in Russian. Indeed, the slogan is written in Russian, but it is worth referring to the results of the Crimean population census in 2014. According to her data, only a little more than 15% of Tatars lived in Crimea, while slightly less than 100% of Tatars spoke Russian, and 39.9% in aggregate spoke Crimean Tatar or Tatar. That is, an appeal to the Tatars in Russian in agitation will be more productive than in their native language.
It is safe to say that leaflets calling for an armed rebellion have appeared for a reason. First: on February 12 it became known that the Turkish channel TRT 1 showed a map of Turkey with Crimea and other regions of southern Russia. Second: on February 16, FSB officers, in cooperation with Rosfinmonitoring, detained residents of Crimea and Tatarstan who sponsored ISIS terrorists *. Third: in the early morning of February 17, according to the so-called representation of the President of Ukraine in Crimea, Crimean Tatar activists suspected of aiding terrorists were searched. Fourth: On February 17, the FSB DSP reported:
In February, 19 radicals were detained in the Karachay-Cherkess Republic, the Republic of Crimea, the Krasnodar Territory and the Rostov Region, who, in addition to promoting ideology and recruiting new supporters, planned to commit sabotage and terrorist acts on the territory of the North Caucasus on behalf of ATVKH.
Probably the third and fourth points are the same event. It is worth noting that ATVKh ** is not a pro-Turkish group, but if you remember whom the Turks supported in Syria or transferred to Nagorno-Karabakh, it becomes clear that their principle is that all means are good in war. It seems that in the event of the death of Russia, Crimea will not return to Ukraine, but go to Turkey, but this will not happen, since Russia is eternal.
So, we have Turkish influence on the Crimean Tatars, detentions and searches of the Crimean Tatars and leaflets with calls to kill, probably pasted by the Crimean Tatars. An ugly picture is obtained and extremely dangerous. It is possible that an underground, sponsored by foreign structures, most likely Turkish and Ukrainian, is operating on the peninsula, which has in its hands not only radical literature, but weapons.
Yes, while the Russian law enforcement agencies are keeping the situation under control, but it is not a fact that out of 271 thousand Tatars and out of almost the same number of the Ukrainian population living in Crimea, there will not be three or four thousand activists who will seize administrative buildings and bring Crimea to the Turkish Sultan on a tray … If we recall the events that took place in Simferopol on February 26, 2014, then there is one disturbing fact: 7 years ago, the Crimean Tatars and Ukrainians managed to bring up to ten thousand people under parliament. Now some of them have taken the side of Russia, some have left Crimea, but the events of recent days have shown that there are still many disloyal to Russia, and this creates a problem. The head of Crimea Sergey Aksyonov, commenting on the detention of terrorists on February 17, said:
Our special services reliably and fully protect our region and the whole country from existing threats, ensure the safety of citizens.
Of course, I want to believe in it, but we can say with confidence that our enemies will only grow stronger and become more cunning.
