Vedzhie Kashka: “Is it really such a crime to be Crimean Tatar?”

An appeal written by Vedzhie Kashka over forty years ago was made public * two weeks after Russia’s attempt to arrest the 83-year-old veteran of the Crimean Tatar national movement caused her death.  Her questions back in 1974 as to why the Soviet authorities were trying to drive her family out of Crimea seem bitterly relevant to the present situation where Crimean Tatars are once again under attack.  | детальніше

Russia jails Crimean Tatar for refusal to collaborate, his father for telling PACE about the case

Among those telling the world about the imprisonment on surreally lawless charges of Crimean Tatar leader Akhtem Chiygoz; Ali Asanov and Mustafa Degermendzhy was Mustafa’s father, a veteran of the Crimean Tatar national movement.  Now Bekir Degermendzhy has himself been imprisoned, on different, yet no less cynical, charges.  The 57-year-old suffers from severe asthma and should not be in detention under any circumstances | детальніше

No let up in persecution of pro-Ukrainian activist & torment of his elderly mother in Russian-occupied Crimea

A court in Russian-occupied Crimea has yet again extended the detention of Ukrainian political prisoner Volodymyr Balukh, despite the clear illegality of the move even according to Russian law, Balukh’s serious health issues and the fact that his elderly mother, who is going blind, has been left without any support.  | детальніше

Sentsov thrown into punishment cell & sent to the Far North because of protests demanding his release

Russia is placing tortured Ukrainian political prisoner’s life in danger

Having driven Ukrainian historian Stanyslav Klykh close to insanity through torture, psychotropic drugs and a Kafkaesque ‘trial’, Russia is now placing the 43-year-old’s life in danger.  His mother reports that, instead of providing her son with proper diagnosis and treatment, they injected him with some unidentified medication which left him virtually in a coma for six days. | детальніше

Released Crimean Tatar leader: No ‘liberation’ while my people, my land are not free

There was a sense of Soviet déjà vu in the release of Crimean Tatar leaders Akhtem Chiygoz and Ilmi Umerov, seen in the secrecy with which the special operation was carried out and in the use of a third country. Déjà vu also since just as in the USSR, the number of political prisoners who remain incarcerated is large and on the increase, with such hostage-taking described by Chiygoz’ lawyer as "profitable business" for the Kremlin | детальніше

Remember Sandarmokh & the Historian of the Terror Imprisoned in Putin’s Russia

On the 80th anniversary of the killing by quota at Sandarmokh of 1,111 Ukrainian, Russian and other Solovki prisoners, Russian writer Ludmilla Ulitskaya has issued a strong warning to the prosecutor and judge in the fabricated trial of historian of the Terror Yury Dmitriev. They risk their children being ashamed of them, and suffering “just as do now the descendants of those butchers who executed innocent people during the 1930s.” | детальніше

More details have emerged of the unexpected release on October 25 of imprisoned Crimean Tatar leaders Akhtem Chiygoz and Ilmi Umerov.  The initial reports that Russia was not preventing them from returning to Crimea were too optimistic and both will, like other Crimean Tatar leaders, be exiled while Crimea remains under occupation | детальніше

Court quietly deletes rigged translation it used for jail sentence of Crimean Tatar Leader Ilmi Umerov

The ‘incriminating’ word used to convict Ilmi Umerov of so-called ‘public calls to violate Russia’s territorial integrity’ has been omitted from the sentence passed on the 60-year-old Crimean Tatar leader.  Correctly omitted, since he did not say it, however the omission makes the political nature of his two-year prison sentence even more glaringly obvious. | детальніше

Russia brazenly flouts UN Hague Court and jails Crimean Tatar leader Ilmi Umerov

In a shock move on September 27, a Russian-controlled ‘court’ in Crimea sentenced 60-year-old Ilmi Umerov, who has multiple serious illnesses, to two years’ imprisonment. Given the suspended sentence of journalist Mykola Semena on analogous charges just one week ago, the conclusion seems clear that the harsher sentence in this case is because Ilmi Umerov is Crimean Tatar | детальніше
