Ukrainian civil activists demand to investigate the facts of kidnapping in the Russian-occupied Crimea. They held a rally in front of the Russian embassy in Kyiv.

According to KrymSOS organization, 44 people have disappeared in Crimea since February 2014, when Russia annexed the peninsula. Fifteen of those were found later. Eight people were found dead.

This particular rally is held in Kyiv annually since May 2016, when the unknown kidnapped Ervin Ibrahimov, the member of Mejlis of Crimean Tatars.

There is still no information on his whereabouts. The activists indicate that not a single abduction case is investigated in Crimea.
