Security Forces Raid Crimean Tatar TV Station


In Crimea, armed, masked security forces raided the headquarters of the only TV station on the Russian-controlled peninsula broadcasting in the Tatar language. ATR television said that Russia’s Investigative Committee, along with counter-terrorism officials, were looking for materials relating to a Tatar protest last year. Human rights groups say some Crimean Tatars have faced discrimination and abuse for opposing Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea. (RFE/RL)
