Due to the critical depletion as a result of the 45-day hunger strike, the Crimean Tatar Nedim Khalilov, deported from the peninsula by the occupiers, decided to stop the hunger strike. His decision is also connected with the fact that no action to be taken on his case until January 9, the Crimean Tatar activist Zevid Haziyev informed on his Facebook page.
“There can’t be any moves until January 9. But he must survive until January 9. Nedim has decided on the independent end of the hunger strike. I want to believe that he may recover and that he won’t have to resume a hunger strike. For me it's a good sign. Greetings to all who supported Khalilov. Your hearty message transformed into his will and strength,” the activist wrote.
December 29, a Crimean Tatar Nedim Khalilov who was deported from Crimea by the occupiers went on a hunger strike until returned home, or death. Russian law enforcement transported him from the village of Vardane to Gulkevichy camp in the Rostov region.
