On June 7, Sudak City Court dropped charges against Ablyakim Ablyakimov, Seytmamut Seytumerov, Enver Chavushev and Alim Muslyadinov arrested on May 18, the Day of the Commemoration of Victims of the 1944 Deportation, lawyer Jemil Temishev wrote on his Facebook page.

“The court dropped charges against all four Crimean Tatars,” wrote the lawyer.

Just a reminder: police ordered Crimean Tatars from Sudak, who drove around the town with national flags, to report to the police station for holding an unsanctioned rally, which qualifies as an administrative offense.

Police also arrested motorists taking part in a May 18 rally commemorating victims of the 1944 deportation.
