According to Emil Kurbedinov, a lawyer of the Crimean Muslims, this method of dealing with dissent is used not only in occupied Crimea, but in the Russian Federation as well.

- In Russia, the words "extremism", "terrorism" and "Islam" have become the tools in the fight against dissent and anyone who has a different stance, Kurbedinov told a QHA correspondent.

Earlier, Emil Kurbedinov said that he has not found any evidence proving terrorist activities of the Hizb ut-Tahrir organization during Russia’s occupation of Crimea.
