KYIV (QHA) -

Yesterday, the Crimea’s Prosecutor Natalia Poklonskaya said the Ukraine’s Presidential Commissioner for the Crimean Tatar People Mustafa Dzhemilev has been arrested in absentia.

Mariana Betz, a Speaker of the Ukraine’s Foreign Affairs Ministry, immediately responded to this incident on Twitter.

- The repressions against the Crimean Tatars are unlawful! We condemn the actions of the occupying authorities, wrote Mariana Betz.

As QHA reported earlier, a Russian Court has arrested Mustafa Dzhemilev in absentia and put him on a federal wanted list.
