Overview of the situation in Crimea. August 2017
Serious deterioration of the human rights situation in Crimea, which started in July, continued in August. Two politically motivated sentences (on Vladimir Balukh and Redvan Suleymanov cases) have been passed; a new criminal case has been opened against the condemned Balukh; one more Ukrainian citizen (Gennadiy Limeshko) has been arrested and charged with alleged subversive activity. Moreover, 10 days of demonstrative arrest have been adjudged to 76-year-old Server Karametov, suffering from Parkinson’s disease, who held a single-person picket. Persons detained during the search in Novoklenovo village have faced torture using electricity.
