He said this speaking from the rostrum of the Verkhovna Rada, Censor.NET correspondent reports.
Refat Chubarov noted that the channel of delivery of smuggled goods into occupied Crimea had been completely blocked thanks to Crimean and Ukrainian activists.
"The activists have blocked the channel of enrichment of the puppet government of occupied Crimea. Aksenov, Belaventsev and their cronies have lost hundreds of thousands of dollars they were receiving weekly for transferring the Ukrainian goods to the Russian mainland through the Crimean Peninsula," Chubarov said.
According to the MP, that was the reason for the intensification of punitive measures by the invaders against the Crimean Tatars, activists of blockade of Crimea, and their families. Dozens of searches and interrogations were carried out in Crimea in recent days.
Chubarov called on the Ukrainian government to cut the delivery of "the single resource which now feeds the occupants in Crimea - the electricity" by taking a relevant decision in the coming days.
