The Ministry of foreign Affairs of Ukraine expressed its protest against the decision of the Russian court condemned six of Crimeans in the case of participation in the activities of a terrorist organisation. A statement published on the foreign Ministry website.
Ukrainian foreign Ministry believes that the charges against members of a cell of “Hizb ut-Tahrir” (banned in Russia) is “completely fabricated.” “The political motivation behind the decision is indicated by the fact that the court ignored the lack of evidence base and supported the request of the prosecution”, — is spoken in the message.
While Kiev called on the international community to condemn the verdict and to increase pressure on Moscow “to force to stop human rights violations in the Crimea.”
November 12, southern district military court in Rostov-on-don has sentenced Muslim Aliyev of 19 years of imprisonment, Inver Bekirov was sentenced to 18 years in prison, Amir-Usain cook received a 12 years, Vadim Ciroc 12 years, Mr. Alimov — for 8 years and Arsene Dzhepparov — 7 years.
They were all found guilty in the case on participation in the activities of the Yalta cell “Hizb ut-Tahrir” and will serve his sentence in a strict regime penal colony. The accused were arrested in February-April 2016. In court, they denied his guilt.
