Locals in the occupied Crimea are very afraid of authorities. Even if they want to express their dissatisfaction with the occupying government's actions, they daren't due to denunciation risk, Russian lawyer Nikolai Polozov told Ukrainian TV channel Espreso.tv.
"Mostly, it is constrained to 'talk in the kitchen'. In Crimea, people get paid for grassing up neighbours, people get money for that, it is a usual practice there" Polozov said.
He also noted that Russian Interior Ministry pushes forward to include grassing periods to people's occupational lives.
