Residents of the Black Sea region of the peninsula are accused of participating in an illegal armed formation (illegal armed formation) in the territory of a foreign state for purposes contrary to the interests of the Russian Federation.
In 2016, the suspect went to Ukraine and entered the Noman Chelebidzhikhan battalion (extremist organizations are banned in the Russian Federation), organized by Lenur Islyamov, one of the initiators and participants of the blockade of the Crimea, and consisting mainly of Crimean Tatars.
