A Crimean Tatar activist Nedim Khalilov was deported from Crimea under decision of the occupation Simferopol Court for his statements expressing his active civil position of disagreement with the annexation of the peninsula. Khalilov said that he was ready for death as a result of a full hunger strike. The condition of non-fasting is his return to homeland in the same way he was transported. He posted the corresponding statement on his Facebook page.
“I'm going to fight for the right to live in my homeland in Crimea as a Crimean Tatar at the cost of life, rather than being expelled from it, as a foreign citizen. No foreign state will recognize me as its citizen and I will not submit any petitions for recognition me as a citizen of any other state,” he wrote.
Currently Nedim Khalilov is held in a temporary detention center for foreign citizens in the Krasnodar region. The activist wished in case of his death to be buried in the city of Kerch in Crimea, where his father and brother rest.

He asked to give a special status to the Crimean Tatars and recognize them as indigenous people of Crimea. He also demanded conducting the court session on his lawsuit in the Crimean Tatar language. By the way, in his demands Nedim referred to the international law and the laws of the Russian Federation that guide the occupation authorities.
