Crimean occupation authorities began to implement on the Peninsula pre-planned provocation, which purpose — carrying out of total repressions against the Crimean Tatar people under the guise of fighting Islamic terrorism. About this informed the head of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatars, people’s Deputy Refat Chubarov on his page on Facebook.
«It is clear that Russian authorities occupying Crimea began the implementation phase in advance of their planned provocation, whose ultimate goal is total repressions against the Crimean Tatar people, which will be carried out under the guise of fighting Islamic terrorism. I think that in tomorrow’s statement of the MFA of Ukraine, which is being prepared, it is to this aspect should be brought to the attention of international organizations and world leaders,» wrote Chubarov.
Recall, February 11, as a result the Crimean Tatars searches in different regions of the Crimea employees of FSB have detained 12 people, 4 of them are suspect of «being involved in a terrorist organization». According to the «investigation» by Russian invaders, one of them a member of the party «Hizb ut-Tahrir al-Islami» has organized a local branch of the terrorist organization.
Note that at the end of January, the commander of international peacekeeping battalion named Dzhokhar Dudayev Adam Osman said that the Russian Federation was preparing attacks in the occupied Crimea with the aim of discrediting Ukraine and create a pretext to launch a full-scale assault. So, during the preparation and implementation of large-scale provocations by officers of FSB of the Russian Federation will be carried out the searches and detention of the Crimean Tatars, condemning the occupation of Crimea, staged and finding they have banned literature and other items (badges, contact info, etc), which should directly or indirectly show that would supposedly «extremist Ukrainian trace» in the preparation of terrorist acts. Also in the provocation for greater influence on the world community may be drawn «map of Ukraine – «ISIS».
We emphasize that in December last year, Ukrainian Muslims issued a statement in which they urge not to succumb to misinformation and speculations of Russian propaganda, aiming to put volunteers Ukrainian Muslim supporters of the «ISIL», and Ukraine — her accomplice. As noted in the statement, the Kremlin propaganda over a long period of time trying to discredit Ukraine in the eyes of the international community, portraying patriots and freedom fighters as Nazis and punishers. And now Russia is trying to present the Ukrainian Muslims, especially Muslim volunteers of the ATO as allies of the terrorist organization «ISIL» («Islamic state of Iraq and the Levant»).
Such statements are not new, since the Kremlin is trying to justify its illegal actions — in particular how it was with the force of moderate Sunni opposition in Syria, which the Russian Federation is bombing under the pretext of fighting against ISIS.
After the annexation of Crimea by Russia in the homes of Crimean Tatar and Pro-Ukrainian activists are often searched with the participation of Russian special services. About this regularly in their reports inform international human rights organizations.
The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine officially declared on 20 February 2014 the beginning of temporary occupation of Crimea and Sevastopol to Russia. October 7, 2015 President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko signed the law. International organizations have recognized the occupation and illegal annexation of Crimea and condemned Russia’s actions. Western countries have imposed various economic sanctions.
