Russian law enforcers released three Crimean Tatars, who had been previously charged with the illegal storage of ammunition. Seitumer Asanov, Umer Abduveliyev and his son Eskender Abduveliyev  walked free on July 26.

They were detained after searches in their dwellings in Kurske village, where the Russian special services allegedly found some ammunition. Their families insist that they had nothing to do with it.

Besides, Russian operatives checked another four houses in that village; the prosecution accused the residents of these houses with an insult of the Russian flag. In late June, the Russian tricolor was taken off from the building of the rural council and burned down.
