Another Crimean Tatar Asan Chebiyev was detained in Crimea on the issue of Feb 26. He was released after the questioning.

Chebiyev was detained in the framework of criminal investigation of Crimean Tatars' rally that took place on Feb 26, 2014, when thousands of Crimean Tatars held a rally at the building of then Crimean Parliament showing their support for Ukraine.

The rally came a day before armed men in unmarked uniforms seized the parliament building and the parliament voted to join Russia several days later.

To recall, last week, the deputy head of the Crimean Tatar Mejlis, Ahtem Ciygoz, was detained by the Russian Federal Investigative Committee, charged with organizing "mass disorder" in front of Crimea's parliament in Simferopol city on Feb.

Commenting Chiygoz’s detention, head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov said it was he, who arranged the rally Feb 26.
