Crimea today: to snitch or not to snitch?



These fliers have started to appear in Simferopil lately, mostly in elevators.  Our Crimean activists have confirmed that not only have they seen these leaflets, but there is a noticeable increase in FSB (Russian Federal Security Bureau) detention and questioning of local activists.  They also called the number on the flier and it is indeed the main switchboard number of the Crimean FSB office.

To quote the famous Russian journalist and writer, Sergei Dovlatov: “We endlessly curse comrade Stalin, and, of course, with good reason.  And yet, I want to ask, who wrote four million denunciations?”

Citizens of Russia!!!
Even though peace came to our land, there is still scum left who want chaos, unreast and war…
They live in our midst, shop in the same stores, use the same trasport…
It’s possible that you know people who were against the return of Crimea to the Russian Federation
