Eskender Bariiev, Member of the Majlis and Coordinator of Crimean Tatars’ Rights Protection Committee, stated on his Facebook page that "Automatic riflemen are placed in the streets of Fontany microdistrict [Simferopol]. According to the available information, this operation cannot be called a suspect's detention, but rather an intimidation of the people. Here came 150-200 snipers and men with assault rifles and machine guns. And the children are forced to witness it," he states.
For the second day armed men in camouflage surround Chistinkoie village near Simferopol, adds Bariiev. This information was also confirmed by so-called head of Crimean republic Sergey Aksenov. The official explanation, delivered to the locals, was "searching a man suspected of murdering doctors in Simferopol". The armed men carry out search of the local houses, some abandoned facilities, and cars, which cross the village. Recalling, September 26, two medical workers were killed in an attack on an ambulance depot in Simferopol.
As was reported by Crimean human rights activists, Russian government, which currently occupied Crimea, interfere in the activities of Muslim religious communities, conducting "preventive conversations" with the Russian FSB (Federal Security Service).
