KYIV (QHA) -

The video message of Umer Ibragimov, whose son Ervin Ibragimov was kidnapped on the night of May 25 this year, was timed to the campaign # Where’s Ervin held outside the Russian Embassy in Kyiv on the 25th day of each month.

Since then, the investigation has not produced any results, in fact, the bulk of the materials and evidence was gathered by close relatives of the kidnapped Ervin.

“I’m waiting for him every day, for sixth month already. Yesterday, the day before yesterday. And all "tomorrows" go away, float away like yesterday. It's very hard... In all that time, I have not seen any positive results (in the investigation -. Ed.). I am cornered. I keep going, but there is no gleam of light. I want to see a ray of hope, but I cannot see it, while going even deeper and darker ...” said Umer Ibragimov.

As QHA reported earlier, on November 25, the activists will once again gather outside the Embassy of the Russian Federation in Kyiv in order to attract attention of the public and to invoke responsibility of the Russian authorities for the abduction and detention of people in the occupied Crimea. The event will take place on Friday at 9:30 am in front of the Russian Embassy on Povitroflotskyi Ave. 27 in Kyiv.


It was reported earlier that Ervin Ibragimov, a member of the Executive Committee of the World Congress of Crimean Tatars, was kidnapped in Bakhchysarai on May 24, 2016. A surveillance camera recorded how two persons in the uniform of the Russian traffic police stopped the car of Ibragimov and dragged him into a van. 

Russian-controlled, now ex-prosecutor of the annexed Crimea, Natalia Poklonskaya claimed that whereabouts of 357 persons are still unknown on the peninsula: 188 gone missing and 169 have lost touch with relatives. Among them are 26 Crimean Tatars.

After the annexation of the Crimean, the cases of missing persons, mainly from among the Crimean Tatars has increased on the peninsula. At the same time the Russian-controlled "Investigative Committee of the Crimea" claims that there is no "mass disappearance of the Crimean Tatars on the peninsula."
