#LIBERATECRIMEA: Mockery of the Dead (issue 67)

22 December 2021

The reaction of the Russian Federation to the UN resolution on Crimea

Two new searches in the occupied peninsula

The occupation authorities opened a criminal case against a dead person

Ukraine adopted the Law on Political Prisoners

The Crimean Tatar ornament Ornek is recognized as the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity

We'll talk about this in the 67th release of the #LIBERATECRIMEA blog

Earlier, on December 9, the UN General Assembly adopted the 4th Resolution on the militarization of the occupied Crimea by Russia.

The resolution contains important support for the Crimean platform, calls on the Russian Federation to stop the transfer of weapons and military personnel to the peninsula, to stop violating the freedom of navigation in the Black and Azov seas.

The reaction of the Russian Federation was not long in coming.

On December 15, Russian Foreign Ministry Speaker Maria Zakharova noted that the adoption of this resolution is an attempt to involve the General Assembly in the anti-Russian campaign of Kyiv and its Western curators.

She stated that this resolution is based on groundless accusations against the Russian Federation in a kind of destabilization of the situation around Crimea. At the same time, the document does not reflect a number of militant measures that the Kyiv regime took in the Sea of Azov, including the transfer of warships there and the regular conduct of artillery fire in its water area.

Probably, the data of the Crimean Tatar Resource Center and other organizations, data of the Ukrainian authorities and intelligence of civilized countries, resolutions, statements of international organizations are all fiction?

For them, the accusations are unfounded anyway.

But then on December 16, for the Russian Federation a new New Year's present, the UN General Assembly adopted the 6th resolution "he situation with human rights in the temporarily occupied Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, Ukraine.

How do you like it?

The occupants continue to look for saboteurs in the Crimea.

Last week, Russian security forces conducted two searches: in the house of the Crimean Tatars Kurtumer Chalhozov and Nariman Ametov.

Kurtumer Chalhozov, fortunately, was released, but before being released he was interrogated in the case of the First Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People Nariman Dzhelyalov and the Akhtemov brothers, Asan and Aziz.

But, unfortunately, Nariman Ametov was not released, they still try to accuse him of involvement in the explosion in the town of Perevalne.

Another resonant case. We would even call it an idiotic case.

In the occupied Crimea, a criminal case was opened against Nabi Rakhimov, Attention!!!, whom the Russian security forces murdered on May 11, 2021 during a search. He is accused of violating Article 317 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Use of violence against a government official).

Please note that the body of the murdered is still refused to be given to relatives and friends in order to bury it, and this already continues for a full six months.

Well. Rakhimov was murdered. His spouse was deported, and the children were left alone.

What else do the occupants want? Or maybe this is revenge?

After all, Rakhimov won a court case against Russia at the ECHR in 2013. In 2014, Russia paid him compensation according to the ECHR decision on the fact of ill-treatment. The ECHR also demanded from Russia not to expel Rakhimov from the country.

Finally, a law was adopted in Ukraine, which is very important for all political prisoners. On December 16, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted as a basis the draft Law On social and legal protection of persons in respect of whom the fact of imprisonment of personal liberty as a result of armed aggression against Ukraine and members of their families has been established.

Well, the public has been talking about the need for this law for more than 5 years, now the support of political prisoners will be enshrined in law.

Another important piece of news. For the first time, UNESCO included the Ornek Crimean Tatar ornament on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

This is a historic day for both the Crimean Tatar people and Ukraine.

Fight for Crimea!

Fight for Ukraine!
