Comment of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine in connection with announcement of illegal sentences to the citizens of Ukraine in another "Hizb ut-Tahrir" case
01 November 2021 11:16

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine protests against the decision of the Southern District Military Court of the Russian Federation of October 29, 2021 to convict four citizens of Ukraine Seitumer Seitumerov, Osman Seitumerov, Rustem Seitmetemov and Amet Suleymanov in the so-called "Third Bakhchisaray Hizb ut-Tahrir Group" case. 

These citizens of Ukraine were illegally detained on March 11, 2020 by the FSB of the Russian Federation in the temporarily occupied Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol, charged under Article 205.5 "Organization of a terrorist organization" of the Criminal Code. Also, in violation of international law, they were illegally transferred to the territory of the Russian Federation, the city of Rostov-on-Don.

With today’s so-called "judgment" ruling the imprisonment of Seitumer Seitumerov for 17 years, Osman Seitumerov - 14 years, Amet Suleymanov - 12 years, Rustem Seitmemetov - 13 years on falsified charges, Russian Federation has once again demonstrated its policy of oppression regarding the representatives of the Crimean Tatar people, aimed at intimidating and suppressing any disloyal civil movements and initiatives in the temporarily occupied Crimea. 

The Russian Federation must overturn today's court decision and immediately release Seitumer Seitumerov, Osman Seitumerov, Rustem Seitmetemov and Amet Suleymanov, and all Ukrainian citizens illegally detained by it.

We call on the international community to condemn Russia's illegal prosecution of dissent and the systematic abuse of anti-terrorist legislation against Ukrainians and Crimean Tatars in Crimea, to increase diplomatic pressure on Russia to release all illegally detained Ukrainian citizens, and to continue protecting the rights and freedoms of residents of the Crimean Peninsula, in particular within the Crimea Platform.
