BILOHIRSK / QARASUVBAZAR (QHA) -

May 30, in the occupied Crimea, in Bilohirsk, a security camera was discovered in the wall of an abandoned barn in front of the house of Fatima Ismailova's father - the father in law of political prisoner Rustem Ismailov, the Crimean Solidarity NGO reports on its Facebook page.

Reportedly, the owner of the barn is a police officer living in the opposite house.  

According to human rights activists, the detection of the camera confirms the fact of covert and illegal surveillance of the private life of citizens, and also causes serious concern for the future fate of the political prisoner.

“Since 2014 in Crimea there has been a tendency to "watch" the places of mass meetings of Crimean Muslims, as well as the installation of surveillance cameras both in mosques and in private households,” the report says.

Earlier, the Head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin told the UN about the repression of the invaders in the Crimea.

According to him, the Crimean Tatars became the main target of repression by the occupation authorities of the Crimea.

The diplomat further noted that Russia continues to ignore the decision of the International Court of Justice calling on Russia to lift the ban on the activities of the representative body of the Crimean Tatars in the Crimea, the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, and to allow Crimeans to receive education in the Ukrainian language.
