The investigation named Mustafaiev as the alleged organiser of the Bilohirsk Group, even though his alleged accomplices were convicted in 2020 and detained even earlier.

During the detention, no explosives, weapons or other evidence of organising a possible terrorist attack was found in the possession of the suspects. 

On November 30, 2022, the Southern District Military Court found Crimean Tatar Marlen Mustafaiev guilty of organising the activities of the Islamic political party Hizb ut-Tahrir in Bilohirsk.

So-called Russian court in the temporarily occupied Donetsk region sentences seven Ukrainian POWs

A so-called court in the temporarily occupied Donetsk region has illegally convicted Ukrainian military personnel. 

This was reported by the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation. 

These are Vladyslav Striukov, Illia Halchukov, Artem Bruchkovskyi, Vladyslav Serhiichuk, Serhii Knyzhnyk, Serhii Kryvtsun and Oleksandr Matushanskyi.

The military are likely to be members of the 36th Separate Marine Brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. The men held positions at the Azovmash plant in temporarily occupied Mariupol. According to the Ministry of Internal Affairs, they all went missing in March-April 2022.

It will be recalled that a Russian court convicted Ukrainian servicemen Leonid Onupko, Vladyslav Ovcharenko, Roman Makusei, Vadym Semchuk, Denys Mirza and Andrii Skorin.

Ivan Yatskin, held in a Russian colony, is not provided with wound care or bandages

The management of the Russian colony in the Kemerovo region in Russia does not provide prisoner Ivan Yatskin with medicines.

This was reported by his wife, Hulnara Kadyrova, in a comment to Krym. Realii.

Yatskin suffers trophic ulcers after frostbite on his feet in the Russian prison in Lefortovo.

His wife reported that the Russians do not hand over the medicines given to Yatskin personally by his relatives. His complaints about this remain unanswered.

In addition, the Kremlin prisoner has not been allowed to make phone calls and has had limited correspondence with his family for over a month.

According to Yatskin's lawyer, the man undergoes harassment.

"The colony spread information that Ivan Yatskin is Jewish by nationality, and against the backdrop of the military conflict in the Gaza Strip, Muslim prisoners are treating him with hostility because of this," Hulnara Kadyrova said.

It will be recalled that in 2019, Russians illegally detained Ukrainian citizen Ivan Yatskin in the temporarily occupied Crimea (Qirim) and took him to Moscow. In 2021, the occupation court delivered a "verdict" in the case of "high treason" — 11 years in prison.
