YALTA (QHA) -

October 1, on the embankment of Yalta, the commander of the so-called People’s Militia of the Southern Coast (Crimean self-defense), a participant in the annexation of Crimea Ovsep Minasyan, was detained.

Minasyan went on a single picket "against the lawlessness of the Crimean authorities."

According to the ataman of the Crimean Cossacks Sergei Akimov, Minasyan went on a hunger strike, demanding to assist him in solving housing problems. During the protest, Russian police detained Minasyan and "one of the activists of the Crimean Cossacks."

“Ovsep was unreasonably pushed back in the waiting-list for an apartment. One of the activists of the Crimean Cossacks was immediately taken away. He brought the placards saying: "I declare an indefinite hunger strike" and "Stop the chaos in the Crimea." Ovsep Minasyan was also taken away. The placards were left on the bench nearby, along with the certificates, which were personally handed by Putin,” Akimov said in the comment to Krym.Realii.

According to him, yet there is no information on the whereabouts of the detainees Minasyan and the representative of the Cossacks.
