As of now, 22 people in Crimea are still missing, most of them - the Crimean Tatars, Presidential Commissioner on the Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Dzhemilev wrote on Facebook.

He stressed that the data he gives may be imprecise, but it is all that is known so far.

- Disappearance of people is often used as a threat during the interrogations by security officials. If a person behaves with dignity when dealing with the FSB, he may be asked, "Are not you afraid that either you or your children will go missing," said the leader of the Crimean Tatar people.

As QHA reported earlier, a charred body of the Crimean Tatar Enver Ismailov, a resident of Ichkinskiyi region, was found in Crimea. A Mejlis member Abmesdzhit Suleimanov suggested that the incident could have been a self-immolation.
