Umerov stated that his words in the program had been interpreted incorrectly.

Umerov was issued a travel ban. To undergo a psychiatric examination Umerov was forcibly placed in a psychiatric hospital, where he experienced serious health problems. September 7, Russian occupants released Umerov from a psychiatric hospital, but later several times summoned him for questioning.

Earlier, the case against Ilmi Umerov was transferred to Judge Andrei Kulishov, who is wanted by law enforcement agencies of Ukraine on suspicion of high treason.
