 Crimea blockade coordinator Isliamov announces soonest "naval and other blockades" of the peninsula

Coordinator of the civil action to block Crimea, former Deputy Prime Minister of Crimea Lenur Isliamov states that information about a new blockade of the peninsula will be released soon.

Censor.NET reports citing Radio Svoboda.

"There will be another blockade of Crimea between energy and naval ones, which you will soon learn about. But I am not going to unveil it for now. You will hear about it in a day or two," Lenur Isliamov said.

He confirmed that cessation of goods, food, and power deliveries to Crimea from the mainland Ukraine will be followed by "naval blockade" of the peninsula including in the area of the Kerch ferry linking Crimea with the Russian Federation.

"This is a military operation that is why I may not yet talk about it. But I should say that the naval blockade of Crimea has already begun. Because Turkey started blocking up the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles after it shot down the warplane, which penetrated into their territory. There is only Kerch Strait remaining but we will deal with it, we are already dealing with it," Lenur Isliamov said.

Commenting on the seizure of his property in Crimea, Lenur Isliamov said that it was "ridiculous since there was nothing more painful for him than annexation of Crimea." "I will return to Crimea and reclaim everything," he added.

It should be reminded that the invaders attached Isliamov's property located on the peninsula.
