Russia’s federal security service, the FSB, intimidated the owner of ‘Cowboy,’ the recreational compound in Belaya Skala village, Crimea; this is where the rally of Crimean Tatars was supposed to take place on Sunday. Thus, the ‘law enforcers’ managed to prevent the rally.

Zair Smedlyayev, the Head of the Central Election Committee of Crimean Tatar people, said that the official reason why the FSB banned the event was ‘weapons and explosives, hidden near the venue of the planned rally.’

‘There are no weapons there; Russian ‘law enforcers’ came there, tried to intimidate the owner, saying he will not be able to let Crimean Tatars hold they rally. I asked the local police where they got that kind of information from – I mean, about the weapons, and they gave no comments.  There are no explosives, no weaponry; it’s just another provocation, and its goal is to prevent Crimean Tatars from gathering,’ Smedlyayev said.
