SIMFEROPOL (QHA) -

Talyat Yunusov— a Crimean Tatar, arrested March 11 for taking part in pro-Ukrainian rally a year ago—will be detained for 2 months. Relevant decision was taken by Crimean court March 13.

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.

Today, Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) officers detained Crimean journalist Natalya Kokorina— who works for the Center of Journalist Investigations in Simferopol. He is now being questioned.
