Invaders in the annexed Crimea can prepare new large-scale provocations against the Crimean Tatars.

The Head of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov made such a suggestion with further explanation on his Facebook page.

On May 15, 2019, in the afternoon in Bakhchysarai, Russian occupiers — local police officers — visited the houses of the Crimean Tatars and interrogated their dwellers, checking their lists, he informed.

Chubarov also said that the district militia officer of the 6th microdistrict Yekaterina Yakhova came to the house of Crimean Tatar woman Safinar Dzhemileva – the spouse of the leader of the Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Dzhemilev. At the time of her arrival, an adult son, Eldar was in the house. A representative of the “power” clarified Eldar’s personal data, verified the data she had and recorded under the personal signature of the respondent.

“When asked what was the reason for her coming to their house and the point of the questioning procedure, the district militia officer Yekaterina Yakhova showed Eldar some list, which included several dozen names, stating that all of them, including Eldar, were suspected of involvement in terrorist activities,” the Head of the Mejlis notes.

Chubarov asked the Crimean Tatar activists, lawyers and civilian journalists to closely monitor the situation in Crimea on the eve and on the day of May 18 – the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of the Crimean Tatar Genocide.

Earlier, QHA media reported that on March 27, the largest wave of searches and detentions of Crimean Tatars took place in Crimea, when more than 20 people were arrested. They were suspected of involvement in the Hizb ut-Tahrir party banned in Russia.
