Russia-controlled Crimean 'court' refused to release Yevhen Karakashev, the citizen of the annexed peninsula and the representative of the left-wing anarchist flow, accused of the extremism in the social networks, as Human Rights in Ukraine reported.

It is stated that Karakashev is held in prison for 10 months, being added to Russia's official 'List of Extremist and Terrorists' without any decision of the court. However, earlier, the defenders of the activist filed the appeals against his arrest.

Moreover, Karakashev complained about his state of health, but the requests on the detailed and proper examination and treatment of the detainee were also ignored. The doctor finally examined him and noted that the detainee should get the proper treatment but this statement was ignored as well.

Karakashev was detained on February 1, 2018, in Yevpatoria, Crimea after the search at his house. He attracted the attention of Russia's FSB two years earlier, by the decision to hold a picket near the FSB building to support fellow anarchist Oleksandr Kolchenko and other Ukrainian political prisoners.

Officially, Karakashev is not recognized as a political prisoner but considered a victim of the oppression, as he added to the list of terrorists and extremists, along with other five Crimeans.

As we reported Kyiv District Court of Simferopol in the Russian-annexed Crimea arrested Crimean Tatar Dilaver Gafarov. Gafarov was detained on October 30, after the search at his home in Perlyna Krymu village.

Crimea was annexed by Russia by way of the illegal referendum that was held on the peninsula in March 2014. Earlier, the Russian military captured all strategic military objects and buildings of the key authoritative bodies. Neither Ukraine nor the rest of the civilized countries recognized the results of the referendum. A number of the European and the world countries, including Ukraine, imposed the economic sanctions against Russia.
