Mustafa Dzhemilev says that the armed searches that Russia’s FSB carry out now in occupied Crimea are far worse than those of their Soviet predecessors. This is not the first time that the veteran Crimean Tatar leader who spent 15 years in the Soviet political labour camps, has pointed to a level of lawlessness under Russian occupation which goes beyond that of the Soviet totalitarian regime | детальніше

Russia is destroying 16th Century Crimean Tatar Khan’s Palace in occupied Crimea

There are compelling grounds for fearing that Russia’s so-called ‘restoration work’ on the world-renowned Khan’s Palace in Bakhchysarai could forever destroy this vital monument of Crimean Tatar cultural heritage.  While Russia is denying the accusations, photos smuggled out of the site are alarming, as is the lack of any experience in restoration work of the construction company and Moscow architectural firm commissioned to carry out the work. | детальніше

Russian FSB “make their careers” by jailing Crimean Muslims on fake ’terrorism’ & ’extremism’ charges

For FSB officers in Russian-occupied Crimea, armed searches, arrests and imprisonment of Ukrainian Muslims are the road to career success.  According to human rights expert, Vitaly Ponomaryov, Russia has used anti-extremism legislation to launch “a conveyor belt of political repression where you can be sentenced on the basis of spurious cases which have little in common with reality”. | детальніше

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’s Selective Takedowns Of Critics Of Its Crimea Seizure

Since its seizure of Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula in 2014, Russia has used a statute criminalizing public calls for separatism to jail at least a half dozen people for criticizing that land grab. It appears presidential hopeful Ksenia Sobchak, who has voiced similar dissent, won’t be added to that list. | детальніше
