"Front Line Defenders strongly condemns the decision of the Supreme Court of Crimea to extend the pre-trial detention and fabricated charges brought against Emir Usein Kuku, as it is believed they are solely related to his peaceful and legitimate work reporting human rights abuses in Crimea. Front Line Defenders also calls on the Crimean authorities to immediately and unconditionally release Emir Usein Kuku."

- Front Line Defenders

On 6 February 2017 Front Line Defenders issued a statement on the case of Emir Usein Kuku, chair of the Crimean Contact Group on Human Rights in Yalta, an organisation that monitors violations of human rights, provides legal assistance, and reports cases of politically-motivated disappearances in Crimea. Emir Usein Kuku is also a member of the Crimean Human Rights Group.
