Illegal raids on Crimean Tatar homes took place in Crimea, the Prosecutor’s Office of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea informs.

In particular, the occupying power’s law enforcement officers took four Crimean Tatars in an unknown direction.

Criminal proceedings were instituted over these facts under Part 2 of Art. 162 (violation of the inviolability of the home). The article provides for imprisonment for up to five years.

As a reminder, Russian security forces detained about 50 people, who protested against illegal searches, unjustified detentions, and actual abduction of First Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis Nariman Dzelyal and Crimean Tatars Aziz Akhmetov, Asan Akhmetov, Shevket Useinov, and Eldar Odamanov, near the Russian FSB headquarters in Simferopol last September.

Refat Chubarov,Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People, said that a new wave of searches and arrests of Crimean Tatars on the peninsula, occupied by Russia, was the revenge of Russian authorities for Ukraine’s Crimea Platform summit.
