SIMFEROPOL/AQMESCIT (QHA) -

A retail outlet of the iCom chain store, selling Apple products and located in Simferopol’s Gorky Street, has been closed.

The iCom chain store was owned by Lenur Islyamov, a businessman and owner of ATR TV Channel, who is now in charge of Crimea’s blockade.

It was reported earlier that Natalya Poklonskaya, Crimea’s General Prosecutor, reported Lenur Islyamov’s assets in Crimea being seized following a court ruling.

Acting in pursuance to Section 2 of Article 281 (Act of Sabotage) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, which prescribes a penalty of more than 20 years in jail, Russia’s Federal Security Service launched a criminal investigation into the blowing up of transmission towers in Ukraine’s Kherson region which caused power outages in Crimea.

On November 2, the FSS reported initiating a criminal case against Lenur Islyamov, one of the organizers of Crimea’s blockade, for urging to breach of territorial integrity of the Russian Federation.

Poklonskaya did not rule out the possibility of Lenur Islyamov’s assets being confiscated to compensate for the damage done.
