A provocation took place during a press-conference in Simferopol, arranged by coordinators of the Committee on Crimean Tatar Rights Protection Eskender Bariyev, Sinaver Kadyrov and Abmedzhit Suleymanov, who earlier had been rejected to hold a rally on Human Rights Day.

Some of 20 Crimean Tatar young men attending the conference behaved in a provoking manner. Young men, who were called by Bariyev “Tatars of Aksyonov” (Sergey Aksyonov - head of Crimea,-ed.), interrupted the speakers and then split a brilliant green on them.

According to Bariyev, one of the provocateurs, is a certain Ayvaz form Sudak, who pretends to the post of deputy mayor of Sudak.

The conference comes amid authorities’ denial to arrange any mass events on Human Rights Day in Crimea Dec 10.

Early in the morning, Simferopol central square was rounded by steal fence. Traffic police officers were patrolling the streets.
