The Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed protest against the unlawful conviction of the four Crimean Muslims charged with involvement in the "Hizb ut-Tahrir" organization.
“It is the cynicism of the occupying state: Umerov is released from the hospital and at the same time four Crimean Tatars are illegally sentenced to 7 and 5 years imprisonment ... We protest against the illegal sentences. We demand the Russian Federation to stop the persecutions of the Crimean Tatars,” the Foreign Ministry Spokesman Mariana Betsa wrote in her Twitter-account.
North Caucasus District Military Court in Rostov-on-Don brought in the verdict of guilty to four Crimean Muslims.
According to the court, Ruslan Zeytullaev, who is suspected of runnung the Sevastopol unit of "Hizb ut-Tahrir" organization is sentenced to 7 years imprisonment. Ferat Sayfullaev, Rustem Vaitov and Yuri Primov are sentenced to 5 years in prison.
