A few days before the announcement of the verdict, the Consul General of Ukraine in Rostov-on-Don Taras Malyshevsky met with the Crimean Tatars. He called them "the cliffs in the midst of a shallow seething sea."

And the representative of the Russian branch of Amnesty International, Aleksandr Artemyev, said that today's court verdict is an attempt to humiliate the Crimean Tatar community in Crimea.

Crimean Muslims involved in the Yalta "Hizb ut-Tahrir case" Arsen Dzhepparov, Refat Alimov, Emir-Usein Kuku, Muslim Aliyev, Inver Bekirov and Vadim Siruk were detained in Yalta in February-April 2016.

Criminal cases against members of Hizb ut-Tahrir have become the hallmark of the FSB’s struggle with dissident Muslims in Crimea. The Hizb ut-Tahrir case is one of the most high-profile and voluminous in terms of the number of persons involved. Dozens of Crimean Muslims are arrested on suspicion of participation in this Islamic party.
