It is specified that nine people live in the house; four of them are underage.

Denisova noted that the searches at the houses of the citizens of Ukraine contradict the international norms. According to her, such actions violate Article 5 of the European Convention on Human Rights that states that each person is guaranteed the right to personal inviolability and Article 8 – the right for respect of private and family right.

Lyudmyla Denisova has urged the international society to respond to illegal actions of occupation authorities and enhance pressure on Russia to stop violations of human rights in the territory of occupied Crimea.

As we reported, 93 Crimean Tatars continue to be persecuted for political reasons in occupied Crimea. At the same time, thousands of Tatars were forced to leave the peninsula due to the actions of the "authorities" of the annexed peninsula.
