Crimean Tartar Reshat Ametov Tortured, Murdered after Attempting to Join Ukrainian Army



The video reportedly shows Ametov passing through a line of pro-Russia “self-defense” forces in front of the Crimean Council of Ministers building on Simferopol’s Lenin Square, where the protest was held. Ametov then approaches a group of armed men wearing green military fatigues, after which two men in unmarked uniforms lead him away.

Local media have reported that when discovered near the Bilohirsk district village of Zemlyanychne, Ametov’s body showed signs of a violent death, with his head bound with tape and his legs shackled.
