How to avoid collaborative activities in the temporarily occupied territories?

“The general recommendation is not to cooperate and avoid contacts that force one or another cooperation with the enemy. You should not go and not take any positions in the occupation authorities. If we are talking about Crimea, then we understand that people live there and they need to live somehow all these years. Our recommendation is to go to work in business. This will be minimal. But again, business can be regarded as a collaboration activity if people provide some assistance or strengthen the activities of the occupying bodies. That is, here, too, not everything is so simple”,- she explained.

The expert added that one should try to avoid putting any signatures under orders and orders. It is desirable to have witnesses who could confirm that the person did not consciously go for collaborationism, or it was not his initiative, that he was forced into some kind of collaboration activity. All this will be the subject of consideration in the courts or commissions. This will certainly help.

We remind you that the CTRC previously developed a test that will help assess the level of its own collaboration activities.
