Muslim families of several regions of the Crimean peninsula have complained that their homes have been searched with the purpose of removal of religious literature.
The inhabitants of the occupied Crimea have to voluntarily hand their literature that is included into Russia’s Federal list of banned extremist materials. The self-proclaimed head of Crimea Aksenov stated this.
According to Deutsche Welle, Muslim families from several regions of the peninsula have appealed to Aksenov with complaints that their homes have been searched for forbidden literature.
According to Aksenov, the problem is that the part of literature permitted in Ukraine is prohibited in Russia. However, citizens of Crimea never received the list of religious and extremist books itself.
Previously, on September 29 in the settlement of Sary-Su near Belogorsk [Crimea] Crimean Tatars held a protest action against kidnappings.
On October 1, 2014 leader of Crimean Tatars Mustafa Dzhemilev declared that during Russian occupation of Crimea 18 Tatars had gone missing. Later bodies of 2 missing Tatars were found.
