SIMFEROPOL / AQMESCIT (QHA) -

Russian law enforcement agencies, which, in fact, perform the function of the punitive offenders of the Crimean Tatar people in the occupied peninsula, continue the dirty campaign of discrediting the indigenous population of the Crimea.

Thus, FSB officers posted in the Russian media a video of a search at the house of Asan Chapukh, an activist detained yesterday.

Russian media outlets, in the best traditions of Putin's propaganda, inform that "apart from the weapons, another ammunition, drugs and extremist materials were seized from the detained representatives of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people.”

The Press service of the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation in Crimea and Sevastopol shared the video.

According to the journalist Anton Naumlyuk, not only Bekir Degermendzhi, but other activists who were detained yesterday, November 23, (Asan Chapukh, Razim Ametov, Ruslan Trubach) are to be judged. 
  
November 23, the searches took place in the annexed Crimea, namely at the houses of Asan Chapukh and Amet Asanov in Koreiz; Kurtseit Abdullayev and his brother Eldar in Simferopol (both were detained); Ruslan Trubach in the village near Feodosia (he was detained with his wife, then his wife was taken to the search).

Bekir Degermendzhi, the father of Mustafa Degermendzhi, a defendant in the “February 26 trial”, was detained in the “Medobory” café in Simferopol.

Also, the search was conducted at Kazim Ametov - a friend of Bekir Degermendzhi in the village of Grushivka, Sudak district, and in the house of Remzy Baytullayev in Hvardiiske.

In the evening of November 23, the occupants released two detained activists - Kurtseit Abdullayev and his brother Eldar.
