Тo Anna Bogacheva - the wife of the political prisoner Vadim Siruk police officers who didn't introduce themselves and were in civilian clothes, but wanted to take away from her explanations came. As visitors explained, they carried out the order of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Crimea - "to work off neophytes".
The woman told about it after a meeting with occupiers.
According to the report, a car drove up, and inside were a man and a woman, who assured that this is a normal survey.
"Both without medical masks. They did not introduce themselves, they said 'don't worry - it's just a poll. I was asked to take the back seat, which I refused. I was immediately asked if I was in any religious organizations", - Anna informed.
The woman contacted a lawyer and asked the staff to provide documents on the basis of which they want to conduct an interview with her. In response, they showed a document with the original data of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Crimea.
"In the papers, it was written about some events and in different areas lists of people - neophytes. There it was written. In the Nizhny Novgorod region, there were 4 people. That is, I, my husband and 2 people - their names are unknown to me. I did not write an explanation, as offered to me by the staff and orally refused to give any evidence. The staff said that in this case, representatives of the Ministry of Internal Affairs would come to me and communicate with me", - the wife of the political prisoner added.
It is noted that Bogacheva saw in these lists the name of her husband.
"When I saw my husband's name on the list, I told them. And the employee said, 'It's good that we'll work out two at once.'" It was obvious that they didn't know where he was or pretended not to know. I told them that he was now in the Republic of Bashkortostan and, accordingly, the employee wrote it down in a document. That was the end of the conversation, and they left", - the woman concluded.
According to lawyer Lily Gemedzhi, these actions of employees are illegal and unacceptable.
"They left, but with camouflage in words the threat that other employees will come. Anya as a person has all the legal rights, including the choice of religion, and unlimited in them, may refuse to provide any information without explanation", - the lawyer considers.
