Chairman of the Committee of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly on Human Rights Ignacio Sanchez Amor stated that involuntary placement in a psychiatric hospital Ilmi Umerov is a wake-up call yesterday, on August 27. QHA agency reports this.
"The Russian authorities are now using the old and particularly worrying tactics, trying to make Umerov shut up. I call for the immediate cancellation of the decision and the release of Umerov", said Sanchez Amor.
He stressed that "the claim of Umerov’s mental instability is an attempt to punish him for speaking out in favor of the territorial integrity of Ukraine".
