SIMFEROPOL, November 2. /TASS/. The law enforcement agencies will check the companies controlled by former Deputy Prime Minister of Crimea Lenur Islyamov for financing anti-Russian activities, Crimea’s Prime Minister Sergey Aksyonov told TASS on Monday, commenting on reports on the searches at the enterprises controlled by Islyamov.
"This is due to his [Islyamov’s] actions with regard to Crimea, the incitement of another state. I think this man will have to answer many more questions, both in terms of doing business and various actions against Russia financed by this business. So the worst is still ahead," Aksyonov said.
Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) earlier said a criminal case had been opened against former Deputy Prime Minister of Crimea and owner of the ATR TV channel Lenur Islyamov. It did not specify the article of the criminal case, adding that Islyamov was a Russian citizen.
Searches are going on at the enterprises controlled by Islyamov, in particular, at the SimCityTrans transportation company and the premises of the ATR TV channel in Crimea’s capital Simferopol. The Bank of Russia on Monday revoked the license of Just Bank owned by Islyamov.
On September 20, Islyamov as well as members of Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada Mustafa Jemilev and Refat Chubarov 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.
