The Ukrainian MFA asked the partner countries to address Russia urging to stop the persecution of the Deputy Chairman of the Crimean Tatar Mejlis Ilmi Umerov and release him, according to the director of the Political Department of the Foreign Ministry Alexei Makeev, as cited by KrymSOS.
The Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin will bring up the issue at the next meeting of the OSCE Members on September 1 in Germany.
“The act of punitive psychiatry against Ilmi Umerov obviously contradicts the European Convention for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment,” reads the Ministry report.
The country's Foreign Agencies also called on Ukrainians to support Ilmi Umerov with a rally, which takes place in Kyiv today, at 16:00 at the Independence Square.
Earlier, the Foreign Affairs Committee of Verkhovna Rada asked the democratic countries to put pressure on Russia concerning release of the Deputy Chairman of the Crimean Tatar Mejlis Ilmi Umerov.
The international organization Human Rights Watch has already made a statement demanding to release Umerov and provide him with medical care.
