The case of Talyat Yunusov, a Crimean Tatar activist and one of the defendants in the case ‘February 26’ has been heard at the Central District Court of Simferopol today. As a result, he was sentenced to 3.5 years of probation. It has been reported earlier that the trial of Ahtem Chiygoz, Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of Crimean Tatars, as well as activists of the Crimean Tatar National Movement over the ‘case on February 26’ is currently being held at the Supreme Court of Crimea in Simferopol.
