October 2, the Russian police in the annexed Crimea released the so-called commander of the “People’s Militia of the South Coast” (“Crimean self-defense”), participant of the events of the annexation of Crimea Ovsep Minasyan, who was detained on October 1 for a one-person picket, expressing his disappointment in the authorities he had supported. The ataman of the Russian organization Crimean Cossacks Sergey Akimov informed about the release of Minasyan in the comments to Krym. Realii.
“The police took an explanatory note from him and nothing more. Also, he was received by the City Mayor of Yalta. He was not able to do this for a year. He has allegedly “resolved” his questions: they promised him to provide housing on January 1, to move him up in waiting lists. We went over this already, that they promise, but do not do anything to the end. Our activist of the Crimean Cossacks was held for three hours to clarify the circumstances,” he noted.
Akimov went on saying that Minasyan had stopped the hunger strike.
QHA reported that Ovsep Minasyan was detained on the embankment of Yalta. He went on a one-person picket "against the lawlessness of the Crimean authorities." Minasyan also went on a hunger strike, demanding to assist him in solving housing problems.
