On March 22, 2018, Russian FSB officers searched the house of Crimean Tatar blogger Nariman Memedinov in the village of Kholmovka in the Bakhchysarai district. Relatives of Nariman said that the search was conducted in a rather crude form. Not only Memedinovs' house was surrounded, but the whole street. After this, the law enforcers took Nariman to Simferopol.
In Ukraine, he is considered one of the many Crimean Tatar held by Russia forcefully as political prisoners.
