Russians were frightened by the explosions in Crimea and rushed to their home beaches: screams, crush, swimming in turns. Photo
The successful attacks of the Ukrainian Armed Forces on the positions of the Russian invaders in the occupied Crimea frightened the Russians so much that they suddenly remembered their native beaches en masse. There was a stir in Anapa. A stampede of thousands of holidaymakers formed on the shore, and three beaches cannot accommodate them.
Some people have to swim to relieve the coastline. Photos and videos were posted online (to see the photos, scroll to the bottom of the page).
An overview of Anapa's beaches - Miracleon, Aquamarine and Pearl - was filmed by tourists who managed to get through the crush. Judging by the footage, there is nowhere for an apple to fall on the shore.
The Russians who were more fortunate took up sunbeds. Other "lucky" people spread towels on the sand. However, most people have to rest standing up or swimming to avoid crowds.
The video shows tourists shouting and arguing, unable to enjoy their holidays in such chaos. The author of one of the videos said that he was "scared to imagine what would happen if everyone got out of the sea".
It is impossible to move around the water without disturbing other people. Russians huddle together to be able to sit down.
