Nariman Jelyalov, Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of Crimean Tatars, posted on his Facebook page:

“Tonight it was reported that Russian border guards detained Veldar Shukurjiev, an activist of the Ukrainian Cultural Center, ‘until the circumstances are clarified’ at the entrance to Crimea. The contacts in law enforcement agencies reported that he was released. However, the communication with him is not yet available, perhaps due to the communication problems all over the Crimea. The guys from KrymSOS public organization say that he is at home.”
