A 80-years old veteran of Crimean Tatar National Movement Vedzhie Kashka was called for questioning to Russian Federal Security Service (FSB), ATR Channel reports.
According to Kashka’s lawyer Emil Kurbedinov, she was called to FSB as a witness of May 3 events, when thousands of Crimean Tatars met their national leader Mustafa Jemilev at Crimean-Ukrainian border, amid Jemilev’s ban on entry Crimea for 5 years.
FSB officers did not question Kashka, because of her age. Kurbedinov said his client refused to witness against herself and her family.
“I am not a coward. I am not hiding, and I’ve never had. That is why I am here [in FSB office]. I came, still I don’t know why they invited me”- she said.
At least 4 people were detained, dozens fined for the events occurred May 3, 2014, when thousands of Crimean Tatars met Jemilev at the border.
Mustafa Jemilev was accused of extremist activity and banned from entering Crimea for 5 years.
