Independent media: Russia is looking for workers to build fortifications in occupied Crimea
Russia is recruiting workers to build military fortifications along the North Crimean Canal in occupied Crimea – the independent Russian channel on Telegram, “Mom Objasnit”, reported on Wednesday. People who have already been employed there complain that their work has not been regulated in any way and that the salaries are lower than promised.
The authorities in Moscow and the self-proclaimed Crimean administration recognized that the North Crimean Canal, stretching in the north-eastern part of the peninsula, could be a natural obstacle in the event of an attack by the Ukrainian army.
Therefore, it was ordered to additionally fortify this part of the Crimea and build a line of trenches there, the opposition channel reads.
