SIMFEROPOL, November 2. /TASS/. In Crimea, searches are going on at the enterprises controlled by one of the organizers of the so-called blockade of the peninsula by Ukraine Lenur Islyamov, the press service of the regional department of the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) told TASS.
"All necessary investigative operations are underway within the framework of a criminal case against Islyamov, including searches," the press service said.
Islyamov, who is currently in Ukraine, controls in Crimea the SimCityTrans transportation company and the ATR TV channel that has stopped broadcasts in Russia.
The FSB earlier said that a criminal case had been opened against former Deputy Prime Minister of Crimea and owner of the ATR TV channel Lenur Islyamov. The agency did not specify the article of the criminal case, adding that Islyamov was a Russian citizen.
On September 20, members of Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada Mustafa Jemilev and Refat Chubarov, as well as former Deputy Prime Minister of Crimea and owner of the ATR TV channel Lenur Islyamov launched the food blockade of the Black Sea peninsula. Activists of Crimean Tatars’ Mejlis not registered in Russia and gunmen of the Right Sector extremist group outlawed in Russia who joined them are blocking the exit of trucks with goods from Ukraine to Crimea.
Crimea’s Prosecutor-General Natalya Poklonskaya earlier told reporters that the republic’s law enforcement agencies were taking action against all organizers of the blockade.
"These are those citizens who violate the law practically against all. Checks are conducted, in particular, regarding the transmission tower explosions and attempts to squeeze money from vehicle drivers who want to come to Crimea to exercise their right to freedom of movement," Poklonskaya said.
