In the Crimean city of Belogorsk, Andrei Belozerov, a teacher at the city technical school, was fired for playing a Ukrainian song by Taras Borovka about the Turkish Bayraktar drone in the audience. Oleg Kryuchkov, adviser to the head of the annexed Crimea, told RIA Novosti:
"The teacher has been fired. We regard such musical performances as a betrayal. It is 150 kilometers to the border, if anyone wants to support Ukraine, they can go there. There they will quickly be allowed to be cannon fodder.”
The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Crimea began an inspection. According to the press secretary of the local Ministry of Education Alexandra Shelukhina, the director and administration of the technical school are also being checked.
Pro-Russian channels claim that the denunciation of Belozerov was written by the students themselves. So, Shot writes that he allegedly constantly said that he was “waiting for the arrival of the Armed Forces of Ukraine”, and hinted that “there will be no Crimean bridge soon.”
The head of the annexed Crimea, Sergei Aksyonov, earlier promised to open criminal cases against those who sing Ukrainian songs in the republic and support Ukraine. All this, according to him, is "a betrayal of Russia."
