On October 29, security forces of the occupiers brought to administrative responsibility Simferopol «activist» Serhey Akimov for an «unauthorized rally» allegedly held on October 17 in Simferopol in the form of a series of single pickets under the slogan «Blue barrel is not the solution. Give us water!» and with calls for the resignation of the «State Council of the Republic of Crimea».

The occupiers also issued the «warning» to Akimov on «the inadmissibility of violating the law on rallies and extremism». As «ARС» already wrote, Akimov was collecting signatures under a petition in which the blame for the water shortages in Simferopol rested solely on the economic negligence of the occupying power and the «enterprise» «Water of Crimea».
