Emil Kubedinova the charge is baseless and fabricated in nature, according to the foreign Ministry of Ukraine.

The Ministry of foreign Affairs of Ukraine expressed strong protest in connection with the decision of “court” in Simferopol, to arrest the lawyer Emile Kubedinova. This is stated in the statement of the foreign Ministry, published on Friday, December 7.

It is noted that Kurbedinov is one of the key attorneys of the citizens of Ukraine, “Russia illegally detained on trumped-up and politically motivated charges, and more recently, it also protects one of the prisoners of war of Ukrainian sailors.”

Diplomats believe that the latter fact could cause his detention, although this is not the first case of persecution by the Russian authorities lawyers and human rights defenders in Crimea.

“In November, Emil and two of his colleagues, Lily, and Eden Hemangi Semelai, was unwarranted “warning about “the inadmissibility of violating the law on demonstrations”, – stated in the message.

The foreign Ministry believe that the charge of “demonstration of attributes or symbols of extremist organizations” used “by the court” in Crimea in order to send Kubedinova behind bars, is groundless and fabricated character.

“In fact, Russia is trying to deprive the Ukrainian citizens are political prisoners in Russia and the occupied territories the right to protection by intimidation and harassment of those who support Ukrainian hostages of the Kremlin protects them in the courts. In this regard, we are concerned that the tactics of permanent administrative penalties, which is used in Russia for “exhaustion” of opposition activists, moved into the occupied Crimea”, – said the Minister.

Earlier on Friday it became known that in Simferopol the so-called “court” sentenced a lawyer Emil Kubedinova defending captured Ukrainian sailors.

The lawyer was taken into custody for five days on charges of public display of symbols of banned in Russia, the Crimean Tatar Hizb ut-Tahrir.
