Zair Smedlyaev, Head of the Qurultai Central Election Commission, posted the information on the event on his Facebook page.

"Chronicle of fighting once again. And how else can you call it, if there are armed people? Another search is being conducted in the home of Crimean Tatar Abdullah on Dzholman Street in the village of Pionerske," he wrote.

It was reported earlier that a search was conducted by Russian security forces in the mosque of the village of Vishennoye, Belogorsk district, on May 13.

On May 12, the Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov voiced his concerns about a new wave of raids after invading the Caravanserai “Salachik” Crimean Tatar Cultural Center by security forces in Bakhchysarai. On that day, Zevri Abseitov, Remzi Memetov, Rustem Abiltarov and Enver Mamutov were arrested.

The so-called Crimean prosecutor Natalia Poklonskaya called the detainees terrorists, accusing them of involvement in "Hizb ut-Tahrir" international political party.

On May 6, armed men raided a mosque in the village of Molodizhne, Simferopol district, during Jumu'ah and detained more than 100 Muslims. On the way to the intended destination, they were released but ordered to show up at the police station.

According to the Mejlis Deputy Chairman Ilmi Umerov - who was also detained on 12 May and released on his own recognizance not to leave - the FSB (Russian Security Service) by all the listed actions is attempting to intimidate the representatives of the Crimean Tatar people on the eve of the 72th anniversary of Deportation of the Crimean Tatars, which falls on next Wednesday, May 18, 2016.
