Russia begins trial of Crimean Tatar leader Ilmi Umerov by removing his defence lawyer

on Sun Jun 04, 2017 1:01 pm
Russia begins trial of Crimean Tatar leader Ilmi Umerov by removing his defence lawyer

40 years after virtually all members of the newly-formed Ukrainian Helsinki Group were jailed for demanding only that the USSR honour its international commitments, a second Ukrainian has gone on trial in Russian-occupied Crimea for demanding that Russia do the same. Crimean Tatar Mejlis leader Ilmi Umerov is facing a five-year sentence for saying that Russia should leave Crimea and Donbas, with the preliminary hearing as parody-like as one would expect under such circumstances.

All four applications from the defence were rejected. If it was predictable that the request, backed by compelling grounds, to terminate the trial itself would be ignored, there was just a chance with respect to one absurdity. The defence asked that the court reject as inadmissible ‘evidence’ an empty protocol from an unlawful attempt to interrogate Umerov’s lawyer Nikolai Polozov as a ‘witness’.

Polozov met Umerov for the first time when he began representing him, and the only thing he could be questioned about is his work as a lawyer. The sole reason for claiming that Polozov is a witness is to deny Umerov his choice of lawyer, since it prevents Polozov from carrying on as his lawyer. Polozov was first summoned for questioning back in September 2016, and immediately challenged this in the court.

Since any interrogation could only be about confidential information between a lawyer and his client, it was clearly illegal. This was recognized by Judge Denis Didenko who back in September rejected the first attempt to get a court order forcing Polozov to ‘become a witness’. The FSB tolerates no judicial independence, and the investigator Igor Skripka soon got the ruling overturned by Viktor Mozhelyansky, one of the ‘judges’ who has taken part in many politically-motivated cases.

That new ruling had not come into force on Jan 25, 2017 when Polozov was effectively abducted and taken to the FSB ‘for ‘questioning’.

As well as stating that the FSB’s actions were illegal, Polozov also demanded that his lawyer be present. This was ignored, and Edem Semedlyaev, who arrived to represent his colleague was told that Skripka had gone away, with the person on duty refusing to find out where Polozov was.

All of this was a lie, and Polozov was taken to Skripka. Another man with a video recorder was present, clearly there to record the moment at which Polozov was made into a ‘witness’.

Polozov, however, took a sheet of paper, wrote “Is silent” and cited the relevant article of the Russian law on defence lawyers and of the Criminal Procedure Code which directly prohibits the questioning of lawyers about circumstances which became known to him or her when giving legal assistance.

Polozov held this up to ensure that it was recorded by the video camera and continued to point to it when Skripka tried to hold the so-called ‘interrogation’.

It was that empty sheet of paper that the defence sought to have excluded from the case on May 31. It is clearly indicative of what should be expected in this political case that the judge had no problem with using non-existent testimony as a means of depriving Umerov of one of his chosen lawyers.

The FSB may have miscalculated. Polozov commented that as a ‘witness’, he will be able to express his views loud and clear in the court, whereas as lawyer, he would need to be a bit more careful in what he said.

Several dozen people came to the court building on Wednesday to show support for Umerov. They included many members of the Crimean Tatar national movement and Ukrainian journalist Mykola Semena, who is himself facing virtually identical charges.

Preliminary hearings are always behind closed doors, and largely formal. The first open hearing is scheduled for June 7.

Ilmi Umerov was, until March 2014, the Head of the Bakhchysarai Regional Council. He left that post because he could not work with the occupiers of his Crimea, and has remained implacably opposed to Russian occupation.

The charges laid against him are under the articles of Russia’s criminal code on ‘extremism’ because of comments made in an interview to ATR TV on March 19, 2016 about Russia’s occupation of Crimea...................

Moscow churches are hotbeds Ukrainophobia and anti-Ukrainian propaganda in Ukraine

on Sun Jun 04, 2017 9:11 pm
Moscow churches are hotbeds Ukrainophobia and anti-Ukrainian propaganda in Ukraine



This week, Parliament will consider a bill co-author where I am, on the special status of churches in Ukraine, which are controlled from the power of the aggressor - the bill number 4511 "On Especially status relіgіynih organіzatsіy, kerіvnі centerand yakih znahodyatsya in derzhavі, yak viznana Supreme Radoyu Ukraine Powers -agresorom ".

Putin's ideologues have already done a lot for this bill to fail. By the way, except only one church in the face of the UOC-MP nobody in Ukraine particularly this bill does not grieved, and create a stir UPTsMP itself confirmed its understanding that Russia - the aggressor, because the bill is not a single mention nothing about the UOC MP, nor about other the church - it is a "virtual" religious structures, which are controlled from the power of the aggressor. So congratulations to the insight, gentlemen religious figures on the FSB rate. On the thief hat off.

The main argument of the Moscow priests, Putin and Ukrainian pro-Russian "experts" and the media against this bill - say, the state wants to intervene in the affairs of the church. By the way, in an avalanche proplachennyh publications in the media (as for the coin of their printed and quite pro-Ukrainian media, Google to help) Kremlin ideologues scream that almost started the persecution of Christians (?? !!) in Ukraine. The true essence of a word bill.

The bottom line is that long before the Russian aggression of one of the congregations of religious organizations in Ukraine, with its center in Moscow in fact were and are completely legal grounds Putin zombie machines. Since the beginning of the aggression they remain hotbeds Ukrainophobia and anti-Ukrainian propaganda in our country. Temples and monasteries of the church in the Donbass in the first days of aggression was a conduit and armories terrorists and Russian invaders, and the priests of the church are not only fighting, but also led the terrorist gangs who killed the Ukrainians. This, according to kritikanov bill is obviously not the "interference" of the church in state affairs.

By the way, this church and now in the fourth year of the war, did not comment on the events in the Donbas with its active participation, not to mention an apology to the Ukrainians.

All we want from this church of the bill - is to get her to make a commitment not to carry out anti-Ukrainian activities in Ukraine. But Moscow priests in their satanic malice ready to choke a saliva at the thought that they would have to give such a promise.
