19 citizens of Ukraine in the occupied Crimea. 19 homes. 19 families.
One morning the FSB officials broke into their homes, stirred up everything that had its place for years and took the fathers and husbands away to judge them in the case of "Hizb ut-Tahrir."
The so-called case of "Hizb ut-Tahrir" has become the hallmark of the FSB staged struggle against Muslim dissidents in Crimea. According to the lawyer Emile Kurbedinov, the case of "Hizb ut-Tahrir" already counts 19 prisoners and includes three criminal cases.
The first and the third cases involve four defendants, and six people are judged in the second. Another case is not legally filed, though five people are charged and kept in custody.
Russia unfairly accused them of terrorism:
Ruslan Zeytullaev, Rustem Vaitov, Nuri Primov, Ferati Seyfullaev, Emir-Usein Kuku, Vadim Siruk, Inver Bekirov, Muslum Aliyev, Refat Alimov, Arsen Dzhepparov, Enver Mamutov, Zevri Abseitov, Rustem Abiltarov, Remzi Memetov, Teymur Abdullayev, Emil Dzhemadenov, Eider Saledinov, Uzeyir Abdullayev and Rustem Ismailov.
So who will be the next if Russia does not stop?
