Occupiers-controlled “Crimean propagandists” started a “campaign of hate” against the Ukrainian rhythmic gymnast of Crimean origin, Hanna Rizatdinova.
Rizatdinova is the bronze medalist of the 2016 Olympic Games in individual all-around, the 2013 world champion in hoop exercises, multiple medalist of the World and European Championships, and other international competitions. Rizatdinova’s position of condemning Russian aggression is not new, and she has been consistently expressing it on social networks and in interviews since February 25, 2022.
In particular, Rizatdinova condemned the murder by the Russian occupiers of the young artistic gymnast from Mariupol, Kateryna Danchenko, and at the same time, Anna expressed her indignation at the speeches in support of Russian Nazism by Russian athletes, such as gymnasts Arina and Dina Averina, and called on the world community to boycott Russian sports.
Now “suddenly” pro-Russian propagandists began to publicly threaten Rizatdinova’s family, in particular her mother Oksana Rizatdinova, who is a coach at the occupiers-controlled “Olympic reserve school” in Simferopol. Fatally, the occupiers force coach Rizatdinova to publicly “give up her daughter and condemn her” threatening “huge problems”.
In general, this situation is an example of imitation by the occupiers of the alleged “full control” of the Crimean youth by the aggressor. For example, from September 1 in all occupiers-controlled “educational institutions” in Simferopol, daily “lines” with the criminal raising of the “Russian flag and singing of the national anthem” are being introduced.
In addition, criminal “political supervisors” have been introduced into the “staff” of these institutions, namely the “advisers of educational leaders”, whose task is to criminally propagate the ideas of Russian Nazism among students and teachers.
