Host Volodymyr Yermolenko (Ukraine World, Internews Ukraine) welcomes to the studio Nataliya Gumenyuk, Ukrainian journalist specialized in international security and conflict reporting who has been regularly visiting occupied Crimea since the annexation. They discuss Gumenyuk’s book “The Lost Island” covering the situation in the occupied Crimea and life of the people on the annexed peninsula (you can buy the book in Ukrainian and Russian here http://bit.ly/3cbU29r). Why do Crimean Tatars stay in Crimea notwithstanding the persecution? What is the life of people who supported the annexation by Russia? What can Ukraine and the international community do to help Crimeans? Nataliya Gumenyuk explains in our podcast.
