Aider Muzhdabayev, deputy director general of ATR TV channel said that he was officially recognized as a terrorist in the Russian Federation.
"I accept congratulations! Now, like many other residents of the Crimea and Ukraine, I am officially a terrorist in the Russian Federation. I am grateful to Russians for such an award, I appreciate it, I am proud," Muzhdabayev wrote.
According to the document, he is charged with "public calls for terrorist activities, public acquittal or propaganda of terrorism".
The court ruling indicated that the reason for this decision was a Facebook post on August 8, 2018, in which Muzhdabayev wrote about the need to release the-then political prisoner Oleg Sentsov through "physical punishment" of Russian agents.
As we reported before, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky met with representatives of Crimean Tatars and told them that a presidential decree on granting the Islamic religious holidays of Eid al-Adha and Eid al-Fitr the status of state holidays would be signed in the coming days
