Ukraine’s foreign ministry decisively disapproves the illegal moving of Ukrainians from the occupied Crimea to Russia. Press service of the Ukrainian authority reported that on Tuesday.

‘The Ministry decisively protests against the illegal transfer to Russia the following Ukrainian citizens: Muslim Aliev, Emir-Usein Kuku, Vadym Siruk, Enver Bekirov, Refat Alimov and Arsen Dzhepparov. They were detained in the occupied Crimea and accused of ‘terrorist activity’ – the trumped-up charges,’ the statement says.  

The ministry reiterated that under the international law, the occupant state has no right to move the citizens from their permanent residence to a different country.
