Supporters Of Jailed Crimean Tatar Leader Rally In Kyiv

Supporters of jailed Crimean Tatar leader Akhtem Chiygoz held a rally in Kyiv’s Independence Square demanding that he be released by Russian authorities. The September 13 protest came two days after a court in Ukraine's Russian-controlled Crimea region sentenced Chyigoz to eight years in prison. Chyigoz was found guilty of organizing an illegal demonstration in Crimea in February 2014 as Russian military forces were seizing the Ukrainian territory.
