 Another Crimean Tatar detained by Russian authorities in Crimea

Crimean Tatar Talat Yunusov, born 1984, was detained in reference to the “case of Feb. 26” (protests near the parliament building of Crimea in 2014– ed.) in the village of Yastrubivka (Crimea) on March 11.

It is reported by Censor.NET citing Krym.Realii.

According to the father of the detainee, Hasan Yunusov, armed masked men broke into the house on Wednesday, at 7 a.m.

"They did not really explain anything … they said that the cameras had recorded his participation in the rally on Feb. 26 and that Talat is suspected of causing someone bodily harm. They said they would take him to Simferopol. There is no communication with him at the moment," the father said.

On March 6, 2015, another Crimean Tatar Asan Charuhov was also detained and taken from Kerch to Simferopol's Investigation Committee in regard to this case. After hours of interrogation, the man was released.

Earlier, Russia's Investigative Committee initiated a criminal case under pt. 1, Art. 212 ("organizing mass disorder") against deputy chairman of the Majlis Akhtem Chyihoz, who was detained in Crimea on Jan. 29. He is suspected of organizing and participating in the riots near the Crimean parliament building on Feb. 26, 2014.

According to "Crimea's Investigative Committee" of the occupational government, more than 150 people were questioned as witnesses within the framework of the case on the events of Feb. 26, with 40 people were recognized as victims, and two as defendants.

On Feb. 26, 2014 a large rally of supporters and opponents of separation of Crimea from Ukraine took place near the Crimean parliament. The former included the Crimean Tatars, Mejlis representatives and pro-Ukrainian activists, opposed by the pro-Russian activists organized by the leaders of the "Russian Unity", headed by Sergei Aksenov, who is now the head of the "Crimean government."
