The physical state of the political prisoner of the Crimean Tatar and the activist Bekir Degermendzhi is consistently serious. According to relatives, he is conscious, but breathes through an artificial respiration unit. The hospital room where the activist is located, is guarded by three soldiers of security forces, relatives and a lawyer are not allowed to visit him.

The Degermendzhi family needs the help of people who are not indifferent. Anyone who wants to help can send money to the 5168745012263759 Privatbank card addressed to Mavile Degermendzhi.

We recall, Bekir Degermendzhi and three other activists of the Crimean Tatar national movement were arrested on November 23. They are accused of extortion. Due to inadequate medical care for a patient with asthma in the pre-trial establishment, Bekir Degermendzhi entered the intensive care and anesthesia department of the 7th city hospital in Simferopol on December 14.

Ukrainian human rights activists published an open call demanding immediate change of the measure of restraint for Bekir Degermandzhi by the Russian government and providing him with the necessary qualified assistance.

His son, Mustafa Degermendzhi is also a victim of a politically motivated criminal persecution in the “February 26 case”. He has been detained in prison in Simferopol for 2 years, now he is under house arrest.
