Meeting the national leader Mustafa Dzhemilev on the administrative border with Crimea is probably the most patriotic moment for the Crimean Tatars over the spring 2014. Back then, close to a thousand of Crimean Tatars, showing spectacular zeal and fortitude, protested against the entry ban for Mustafa Dzhemilev, a person who symbolizes a long and difficult return of the Crimean Tatar people repressed during the Second World War to their Homeland, to Crimea.
Despite the prosecution and punishment inflicted on the protesters, Mustafa Dzhemilev still embodies the struggle of the Crimean Tatar people.
In 2014, Mustafa Dzhemilev tried to enter the territory of the peninsula, but the Russian border guards told him that he was forbidden to cross the border of the Russian Federation until 2019. Later, the Kiev District Court of Simferopol arrested Dzemilev in absentia and launched a criminal case against the leader of the Crimean Tatar people under three Sections of the Russia’s Criminal Code.
According to Dzhemilev’s lawyer Mark Feigin, so far, "no one has seen the document banning Dzhemilev from entering the Crimean territory."
In the preparation for a regular hearing, a representative of the Russian Federal Security Service said that for the time being a complaint filed by Mustafa Dzhemilev over the entry ban to Crimea was transferred to the Moscow City Court under the pretext of a state secret.
