A bailiff came with a court judgment that ‘came into force.’ We had a discussion and then they left. They said they were giving me five days. Either I’m able to appeal the court decision or I have to voluntarily demolish my house. Otherwise, they’ll do it themselves," Rustem Useinov said.

According to the activist, he did not even suspect the court had handed down a ruling on finding his house “illegally built.”

On the advice of his lawyers, Useinov took the papers from bailiffs for examination without signing them.

Earlier, Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, Refat Chubarov, reported about the incident on his Facebook page

The official noted that Rustem Useinov will bear all costs of a municipal pull-down of his house if he defies the court ruling obliging him to do it himself.
