      Only Crimean Tatars targeted in Russia’s most lawless trial “because the victor calls the shots”

      The ‘trial’ has ended in Russian-occupied Crimea of five Crimean Tatars accused of ‘involvement’ in a pre-annexation demonstration over which Russia has no jurisdiction. Verdicts are due on June 4, but are unlikely to bring many surprises, given that this lawless case was not terminated at the first court hearing despite being...

      4 years of Kremlin’s ‘Donbas republics’ and their far-right and left-wing friends

      It is surely appropriate that the self-proclaimed ‘Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics’ [DPR, LPR] date their ‘statehood’ from a fake referendum that even Russia eventually decided not to recognize.

      Russian FSB seize the cousin of Crimean Tatar political prisoner

      Nuri Primov and three other recognized Crimean Tatar political prisoners are imprisoned in Russia on the basis of a conversation about their Muslim faith, about Ukraine and Russia.

      Ukrainian sentenced to 8 years on bizarre ‘sabotage’ charges in Russian-occupied Crimea

      25-year-old Hennady Lymeshko has become the latest Ukrainian to receive a long sentence in Russian-occupied Crimea on highly implausible ‘sabotage’ charges. There was never any objective evidence to back the FSB’s claim on 15 August 2017 to have averted acts of sabotage, only a ‘confession’ from Lymeshko, who showed signs of...
