Head of the Board of the Crimean Tatar Resource Center, head of the Department of Legal and Foreign Affairs of Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Eskender Bariiev, in an interview with Crimea.Realities, said that Russians continue to buy real estate in the occupied Crimea due to insufficient information policy on the part of the Ukrainian state.
“The main reason is the insufficient information policy on the part of the Ukrainian state. The regulatory and legal framework on our part is not clearly defined. Yes, there is a law On Temporarily Occupied Territories, which states that all transactions concluded in the occupied Crimea are illegal. But the average Russian does not know about it. Not all people who live in the temporarily occupied territory even know about it”,- he explained.
Bariiev stressed that there should be a wide information campaign on the part of Ukraine so that every Russian understands all the risks of acquiring property in the occupied Crimea.
