MFA of Ukraine demands to release Crimean Tatars: Kremlin reiterates the repressions of the 30’s

The Kremlin repeats in the occupied Crimea horrible Soviet repressions of the 1930-ies, as well as the genocide of the Crimean Tatars in 1944. This is emphasized in the statement of the MFA of Ukraine with a demand to stop repressions against the Crimean Tatar people.

In Crimea have extended the searches of Crimean Tatars

«Grossly violating the rights and freedoms of people who, due to military aggression of Russian Federation against Ukraine have become hostages of the Russian occupation regime in their native land, the Kremlin in the twenty-first century repeats the terrible Soviet repression 30-ies of XX century, as well as the genocide of the Crimean Tatars in 1944», — stressed in the Foreign Ministry.

The foreign Ministry expressed deep concern screaming illegal activities of Russian occupation forces in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea against the Crimean Tatars, which were the result of mass illegal searches and arbitrary detention on 11 and 12 February 13 citizens of Ukraine — representatives of the Crimean Tatar people.

«It is particularly outrageous that the Kremlin is trying to hide a policy of destruction of the Crimean Tatar people behind the screen imaginary of the fight against terrorism. Demand the Russian Federation to immediately stop political repression against the citizens of Ukraine and to release the illegally detained the Emir of Usain cook, Vadim Siroka, Enver Bekirov, Eldar Salamieh and Muslum Aliyev«, — the statement stresses.

The foreign Ministry of Ukraine also appealed to the democratic world with a call «to strengthen effective joint pressure on the state of the occupant, because what is happening today in the occupied Crimea, not only a gross violation of international law, but also a daring disregard of all human values».

In Crimea have extended the searches of Crimean Tatars

The head of CEC of Kurultay of the Crimean Tatars Zaire Smedlyaev reports about the new search, which took place in the family of Eldar Salamieh February 12 in the village of viktorivka Bakhchisaray district. It is reported by «Krym.Realities».

According Soglaeva, after a search of the Eldar were taken in an unknown direction. Relatives can not explain, nor who carried out a search and on what basis, and where took out the Eldar.

Other details are unknown. Comments controlled by the Russian law enforcement bodies in Crimea are absent.

In Crimea, February 11, searches were conducted in the homes of the Crimean Tatars. Later, the Russian «Prosecutor» of Crimea Natalya Poklonskaya reported the arrest of 4 people in the context of a criminal investigation into the activities of «terrorist organization «Hizb ut-Tahrir».

According to the Russian investigation, «one member of the party «Hizb ut-Tahrir al-Islami» has organized a local branch of the terrorist organization, which operated on the territory of Yalta and Alushta».

The mufti of Ukraine said Ismagilov reported the detention of 12 people, two of whom were released after questioning. In the Majlis of the Crimean Tatar people called this the searches a new wave of repression against Crimean Tatars.

The foreign Ministry of Ukraine on 11 February stated that «closely monitoring all cases of persecution on political and ethnic grounds, intimidation, torture, kidnapping, held by the Russian government or its direct lost in the occupied Crimean Peninsula».

On 12 February near the building of Ukrainian Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Crimean Tatars hold a demonstration with the requirement to respond to a wave of searches of Crimean Tatars houses, which the Russian special services held yesterday in the Crimea.

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.
