(QHA) -

Russian FSB [Federal Security Service] officers are present almost officially and openly in the Crimea’s mosques, taking note of whose beard is longer, how religious people are, so that [those more religious] automatically are accordingly categorized as Islamic radicals.

Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Jemilev announced in his interview to Ukrainian 5 channel.

He described as repression the primitive behaviour of self-defence forces of Crimea. The latter, as reported, used violence against a young man and three women in the Mejlis building on Monday who tried to stop them from bursting in and removing the Ukrainian flag raised over the building.

Jemilev has also reported that Crimean Tatars who refuse to take Russian citizenship have lost their jobs as a consequence.
