KYIV (QHA) -

Outside the building of the Russian Embassy in Kyiv, activists demanded to find and release dozens of those who disappeared during the occupation of Crimea.

Participants in the action-performance, which is held in the Ukrainian capital for 21st time already, carried placards with the names of the Crimean Tatars who disappeared, as well as banners with the appeal to find Ervin Ibragimov, a member of the WCCT, abducted in May 2016 by the occupiers.

“This time the performance is devoted to the topic of those processes that invisibly occur in the Crimea [the disappearances of activists, - Ed.]. Like  the "Swan Lake", which was broadcast during significant events in the USSR, people on the peninsula also forget about the facts of disappearances and do not often talk about them," said organizer of the action and coordinator of the public organization" CrimeaSOS "Tamila Tasheva.

During the performance, activists demonstrated on the TV screen excerpts from the ballet "Swan Lake" and news stories about the abducted, drawing parallels with the policy of the USSR on the silencing important events.


By this action, human rights activists also drew attention to Crimean Tatar Nariman Memedinov detained in the Crimea.

Earlier information about the unfinished project of Nariman Memedeminov, which he worked on before the detention, appeared in the network.
