QHA sources in Crimea claim that the Crimean authorities are going to stage some kind of a protest against the blockade. Some imams believe their signatures will be collected.

A number of the imams note that what is happening is the logical extension of Emirali Ablayev’s negative statement regarding the blockade. Most likely, the Pervomaysk district is only a beginning.

It was reported earlier that Emirali Ablayev, Mufti of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, condemned the energy blockade of the peninsula, saying that what the activists are doing is not compliant with Islam.
