Foreign Minister of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba believes that Russian law enforcers detain Crimean Tatars to revenge for “successful holding" of the Crimean Platform Summit by Ukraine as he stated during the briefing.

According to the minister, the accusations against the Crimean Tatars are absurd and politically motivated.

“We will work with our partners to release these people, as well as to release all political prisoners detained by Russia,” he assured.

On September 4, local law enforcers searched Dzhelyalov's house and apprehended him. It appears that he was accused of sabotage. The Office of Envoy of President of Ukraine in Crimea connects this prosecution with the fact that Dzhelyalov participated in the session of Crimean Platform

Deputy Head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people Nariman Dzhelyalov was arrested for two months and faced charges due to the diversion.

Besides, the court of Crimea controlled by occupation authorities has sent two more Crimean Tatars – Aziz and Asan Akhmetov, to the remand center for almost two months.
