THE MINISTRY FOR REINTEGRATION SEEKS TO TIGHTEN THE ENFORCEMENT OF SANCTIONS AGAINST RUSSIA DUE TO ILLEGAL SENTENCES FOR CRIMEAN TATARS
The Ministry for Reintegration of the Temporary Occupied Territories (MRToT) seeks to tighten the enforcement of international sanctions against persons in Russia, who pass illegal, politically motivated sentences against illegally detained Crimean Tatars.
Deputy Minister for Reintegration of the Temporary Occupied Territories of Ukraine Inna Holovanchuk stated the aforementioned during the rally on Maidan Nezalezhnosti in support of the Crimean political prisoners of the Hizb ut-Tahrir case.
According to Holovanchuk, the sanctions list should include Russian prosecutors and judges who illegally imprisoned seven Crimean Tatars, activists accused by the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation of alleged involvement in terrorism.
It is known that on September 16, the Southern District Military Court of Rostov-on-Don sentenced the Crimean Tatars Server Mustafaiev, Edem Smailov, Marlen Asanov, Seiran Saliiev, Server Zekiriaiev, Memet Bielialov and Tymur Ibrahimov, condemning each of them from 13 to 19 years of strict regime colony. "We would like to know every one of those judges and prosecutors who allow themselves to illegally deprive Ukrainian citizens of their freedom. We believe that with our colleagues from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, together with our international partners, we will be able to achieve the imposition of additional sanctions not only on the Russian state, which occupied the Ukrainian Peninsula, but also personally on the servants of the Russian repressive machine," stressed Inna Holovanchuk.
She noted that the MRToT provides monetary support to families of "political prisoners of Kremlin" and released from Russian captivity Ukrainians, and despite the illegal imprisonment of the Crimean Tatars will seek their release and return home. "Crimean Tatars are not so easy to stop. These fantastic figures of illegal sentences will not stop these persons, who fight for their people, for justice," noted Deputy Minister for Reintegration of the Temporary Occupied Territories of Ukraine.
