Bekir Dehermenji, the 57-year-old Crimean Tatar activist faces grave life risks without timely administered medical aid; human rights activists urge Ukraine’s government to keep the track of his health condition.

‘His current condition is extremely tough. He suffers from pulmonary edema and heart failure. He is plugged into the lung ventilator and currently in the state of an induced coma. According to his family and lawyer, Dehermenji is kept at the 7th city hospital in Simferopol; he is unconscious but still wearing handcuffs,’ members of Krym SOS organization posted on Facebook. ‘Policemen guard his ward, and there are a lot of so-called law enforcers near the hospital’.

The human rights activists demand that Russia immediately release all suspects in the ‘extortion case’ and close the respective criminal proceeding.

‘We turn to the Ukrainian government, governments of other states, as well as international organizations, asking for assistance in administering the timely and qualified medical assistance and his eventual release,’ Krym SOS wrote.   

In November, the Russian FSB held a number of searches at the houses of Crimean Tatars in Sevastopol, Simeiz, Holodovla, Hrushovka and Yuzhne (all in the occupied Crimea).

Ruslan Trubach, Bekir Dehermenji, Asan Chapukh and Kyazim Ametov, Kurtseit Abdullaev and Vedjie Kashka were detained. 82-years old Vedjie Kashka felt bad during the arrest and she was hospitalized and later she died. Russian FSB explained the unexpected searches with the case of the extortion of money from the citizen of Turkey.
