On May 18, a pro-Ukrainian protest is expected to take place in the capital of Russia-annexed Crimea, Simferopol.

Russia's war against Ukraine - the main events of May 17

The initiative is titled “Simferopol, time to come home,” and was announced via Facebook on May 17.

To prevent Russian occupation authorities from disrupting the protest, the exact time and place for the march will be announced later.

“To come out and protest is to assert the right for your own home,” the announcement reads.

“It’s to honor the Crimean Tatar deportation victims and those who died in (this) war, and to condemn Russia’s invasion; it’s to support Ukraine’s territorial integrity.”

The activists urge locals to join the protest and carry yellow ribbons.
