A Russian lawyer, Mark Feigin, who along with a lawyer Nicholay Polozov have secured the release of the Ukrainian pilot Nadiya Savchenko, who was illegally convicted in Russia, will represent the interests of the Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People, Ilmi Umerov.
- Starting today, I will defend Ilmi Umerov, a former Head of Bakhchisaray Regional State Administration and the Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People. He is charged under Part 2 Section 280.1 of the Criminal Code (making public appeals and committing actions aimed at violating Russia’s territorial integrity). I will run this case jointly with Nicholay Polozov (who is also defending Ahtem Chiygoz and Haysera Dzhemilev) and my Crimean colleagues. I will proceed to it soon, but we need help, big help. I will tell about it later, wrote Feigin.
May 19, the occupation authorities accused Umerov of separatist statements during his speech at the ATR TV Channel when the Mejlis Deputy Chairman said "it is necessary to force Russia to pull back from Crimea and Donbas."
The occupants also mentioned Umerov’s words about changes to the Ukraine’s Constitution when he said that the Crimean Tatar people should be granted a separate status, while Crimea should become a national autonomy within Ukraine.
