New searches and detentions of Crimean Tatars in Crimea - фото 1
February 17 in Crimea began with a series of searches in the households of Crimean Tatars and subsequent detentions in Simferopol, Bakhchisarai, Belogorsk, Sevastopol and Sovetsky District.

The first reports of illegal actions of security forces on the territory of the temporarily occupied Crimean Peninsula began to arrive at 4 am. This is reported by the Representative Office of the President of Ukraine in Ukraine in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea.

Searches were conducted at the activists' households:

Makhamadinov Abdulboriy Makhamadin ogly
Eyupov Azmat
Yalkabov Timur Muminovich
Oleg Fedorov
Ibragimov Ernest
Seydametov Lenur
Shikhametov Yashar

Among those detained are Azmat Eyupov, a protester on Red Square in Moscow, as well as Ernest Ibragimov, an activist of the Crimean childhood initiative.

The Representative Office of the President of Ukraine in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea condemns the regular actions of the Russian Federation on the territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, aimed at persecuting citizens solely for their political position or the religion they profess. Russia is once again committing a war crime, and the real goal of the occupier is to destroy any manifestations of resistance and solidarity in Crimea. The mission's team records every case of illegal political persecution carried out by the occupation administrations and transmits information to law enforcement agencies, as well as uses it in work at the national and international levels.
