SIMFEROPOL / AQMESCIT (QHA) -

In the annexed Crimea in areas with large concentrations of the Crimean Tatars in Simferopol, namely Mamak (now Strogonovka) and Bavurchi (now Kamenka), police cars of Russian invaders arrived to the houses of some Crimean Tatar activists late at night, the Head of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov reported on his Facebook page.

According to him, local activists do not exclude that searches and new detentions of Crimean Tatars living in settlements can be expected.

"However, it is not unthinkable that this is a form of sophisticated moral pressure on activists of the Crimean Tatar national movement to make them reduce their civic activity," Chubarov said.

Earlier QHA reported that the occupiers in the Crimea summoned a 62-year-old resident of the Simferopol district Muniver Kelyamova for questioning. The woman is the mother-in-law of the political prisoner Edem Smailov.
