Crimean court fined journalist for “Crimean Solidarity”

14.05.2021, 16:53

The Nizhnyhirsky District Court in the occupied Crimea pronounced sentence in a criminal case against Ayder Kadyrov, a citizen journalist and contributor for “Crimean Solidarity”, as “Krymsky Process” edition reported.

The court found the journalist guilty of committing a crime under Article 205.6 (“Failure to report a crime”). 

As a punishment, Kadyrov was fined 30 non-taxable minimum incomes.

As IMI reported, on May 12, Ayder Kadyrov made his last word in court. He stressed that pled not guilty.

At the end of April, in the Russian-occupied Crimea, the public prosecutor’s office demanded that the Nizhnyhirsky District Court impose a fine of 25,000 rubles (around $333). 

On August 31, 2020, As IMI reported, on August 31, 2020 on August 31, 2020 in the Crimea, in the town of Nizhnyhorske, Russian security forces searched dwelling and then detained the correspondent with the "Crimean Solidarity" and the online newspaper "" Ayder Kadyrov.

On the night of September 1, Ayder Kadyrov was released on bail. Russia's FSB charged him with Art. 205.6 (failure to report a crime) of the Criminal Code. According to FSB investigator Valery Sherstyuk, Kadyrov, along with other detained Crimean Tatars, did not talk about correspondence in 2015 with Umidjon Dadajonov, who, according to the Russian occupiers, fought on the side of the terrorist organization ISIS.

September 28, 2020 the Kyiv District Court of Simferopol dismissed complaint against investigator activity regarding the citizen journalist Ayder Kadyrov , since the judge did not find “violation in the investigator’s actions”. The complaint was filed by the lawyer defending the journalist Oleksiy Ladin.
