In Dzhankoy, five activists of the Crimean Tatars national movement are being summoned to the police for giving explanations regarding putting flowers to the monument to the victims of genocide of the Crimean Tatar people on May 18. Deputy Head of the Medjlis of the Crimean Tatar people Nariman Dzhelialov informed this on his Facebook page.
The Medjlis Deputy Head wrote that, according to the information he had, the police would hand the cases over to the court, which, most likely, would sentence the activists to a fine for holding a non-sanctioned event.
Crimea.Realii informs with a reference to one of the participants of the action Ruslan Kurtseinov that the activists are charged under Part 2 of Article 20 of the Administrative Code of the Russian Federation (breaking the set order of organization or conducting a meeting, a rally, a demonstration, a march or a picket).
«It’s just – the people came, put flowers, headed for the railway station from the memorial stone, of course they were moving in a column, to the railway platform, to put flowers to the shield. They mistook this for holding a demonstration, a rally, and summoned five people to the police because of that», – Kurtseinov told.
Important to note, on May 18 the Russian law-enforcement agencies at the peninsula used all means to prevent the Crimean Tatars from marking the Day of Remembrance for the victims of the Crimean Tatar genocide.
