The measure of restraint for the five detained Crimean Tatars on suspicion of alleged sabotage will be chosen in the courts on September 6. Ukrainian Ombudsman Lyudmyla Denisova announced this on her Facebook page.

She noted that on September 6, in the so-called "courts" of the occupied Crimea, the measure of restraint will be chosen for Nariman Dzhelyalov, first deputy head of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people.

The Russian occupiers suspected him of committing a crime falling under part 1 of Article 281 "Sabotage" of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation and provides for a penalty of imprisonment from 12 to 15 years.

“I call on the international community to respond to the illegal detentions and trials of Ukrainian citizens in the temporarily occupied Crimea,” Denisova summed up.

As we reported earlier, after searches and detentions by security forces in the occupied Crimea, relatives of the detainees and concerned citizens went to the Federal Security Service building in Simferopol to protest. The occupiers captured more than 50 protesters.
