According to Kadyrov, such incidents were recorded in several areas of Simferopol, in particular, in the Crimean Tatars' compact settlement Ak-Mechet.

Thousands of Crimean Tatars were taken to Central Asia. During the trip and the first year of exile, more than 30,000 people died from hunger and disease. Crimean Tatars were allowed to return to their homeland in the Crimea only in 1989.
