'The search takes place in Akmechet district, Simferopol at the house of Fazyl Ibraimov. There are not so much people, some of the came to support him, the law enforcers without police vans and covering masks stay outside', the message said.
Mammet Mambetov, the Crimean lawyer reported that Ibraimov and his wife were detained.
Russia illegally annexed Crimea in March 2014; Ukraine and the vast majority of civilized countries never recognized the annexation, claiming that the peninsula remains part of Ukraine. The Russian political leadership and leading enterprises faced sanctions from the EU and the U.S.
Since the annexation, Russian authorities of Crimea have been frequently searching and detaining local residents. Human rights activists threat this as a 'crackdown on dissent'.
