Activist Ridvan Umerov, whose dwelling was searched by Russian security forces on August 31, was charged under Article 205.6 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (failure to report a crime). This was reported by the Crimean Solidarity public association.

“We filed complaints to the prosecutor’s office against the actions of the FSB officers in order to check the legality of their actions. Among other things, we wrote a statement to the Military Investigative Committee in Crimea that the FSB officers had committed a crime against Umerov”,- said lawyer Marlen Khalikov.

Earlier, Ridvan Umerov refused to undergo an outpatient psychiatric examination, after which the FSB investigator threatened to assign him a compulsory examination for a period of 21 days.

We remind that on August 31, Russian security forces conducted mass searches in the houses of the Crimean Tatars in the Nyzhniohirsk and Sovietskyi districts of Crimea, as well as in the city of Sudak. As a result, four people were detained. Subsequently, Enver Topchi, Ayder Ablyakimov, Ridvan Umerov and Ayder Kadyrov were released on recognizance not to leave. They are charged with Article 205.6 of the Criminal Code of Russia (failure to report a crime).
