"People in Crimea are disappearing and suffering from repression. We are protesting against the detention and brutal beating of a member of the Kurultai of the Crimean Tatar people, Asan Egiz. It seems that the Kremlin believes that such crimes can be committed with impunity," Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin wrote on Twitter.
Kurultai delegate Asan Egiz was kidnapped and beaten in occupied Crimea. His lawyer said that Egiz had contacted relatives and said that law enforcement officers stopped him on the road, pushed into a minibus, beat and took to a forest.
Egiz currently stays in Simferopol city hospital, where he gets medical assistance.
The head of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, Refat Chubarov, confirmed the beating of the Kurultai delegate.
