Coordinator of the Committee on the Protection of the Rights of the Crimean Tatar people, member of the Mejlis Eskender Bariiev says that mandatory military registration of men in Russian-occupied Crimea forces the male population to either leave for the mainland Ukraine or receive Russian military ID. In the latter case, the Crimeans fear that they could be accused of treason.

This was stated by Bariiev on his page on Facebook, Censor.NET reports.

"After the occupation of Crimea by the Russian Federation, it obliges all men younger than 55 to register with military authorities. Without registration men are deprived of the opportunity to find employment in state or non-state funded institutions, enterprises and organizations, as well as to register a company, or they become subject to a fine in the amount of 500-1,500 rubles. Thus, they are forced to leave Crimea since they need to feed their families, or receive the Russian military ID. Persons who served in the armed forces of Ukraine who have the Ukrainian military ID are not given it back after registration and issued Russian military ID instead. People are concerned that in the first case, you shall either starve or leave Crimea, and in the second case you could be accused of treason...," the coordinator of the Committee on the Protection of the Rights of the Crimean Tatar people said.
