Another Crimean Tatar--Talyat Yunusov-- was detained in Crimea for participating in last year pro-Ukrainian rally in Simferopol. He is now being detained in office of Investigation Committee office in Simferopol.

Armed masked men burst into Yunusov’s house early in the morning and said he was suspected of bodily injury, as the video footage of Feb. 26, 2014 rally proves his participation in the event.

Thousands of Crimean Tatars gathered at the building of Crimean Parliament Feb 26, to show their support for Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty.

Talyat Yunusov’s arrest comes days after Crimean Tatar activist Asan Charukhov —who is also participant of the rally—was detained. He was released after hours of questioning.
