In Crimea took place the next attempt to kindle inter-religious conflict on the ground of murder of a 19-year-old girl. A number of mass-media spread messages on murder by "the Crimean Islamites for infringement of the laws of Shariat". At the same time the Central administrative board of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine in Crimea categorically denies the information that the crime had a religious pretext.
"There is no religious pretext in the given crime", Olga Kondrashova stated on Friday to the chief of the centre of public relations of the MA of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine in the ARC.
As it became known, law enforcement officers established the personality of the murdered girl. It was the 19-year-old student of a local technical school, Ekaterina Koren, who about a week ago was put on the wanted list by her parents. The cause of the death was an open craniocereberal trauma, and also suffocation traces were appreciable.
On suspicion in murder was detained a 16-year-old local resident, Bilal Gaziev, who was the girl's group-mate.
During the primary interrogation the guy confessed to the crime. However, according to the information of the acting chief of the Soviet RD Dmitry Kratko, subsequently the arrested person refused from his indications.
Dzhemilev: the murderer has no relation to Islam
In his interview to TSN.ua the leader of the Mejlis of the Crimean-Tatar people, Mustafa Dzhemilev, named the information on murder of the 19-year-old girl by "the Crimean Islamites according to the law of the Shariat" as provocation and stated that the murderer has no relation to Islam.
"As I have understood, according to his father, their family is non-believing, who never went to a mosque. His father is the Crimean Tatar, well, formally they are considered to be Muslims, but there is no any sign of wahhabism! So probably this is a kind of provocation", Dzhemilev emphasized.
When representatives of the Mejlis addressed militia together with the father of the arrested guy, it was found out that when Gaziev was sent the lawyer, the young man refused from his primary indications. He told to his father the following, "Men from militia told me that I must say so... I told them that I have no relation; that I only saw her off. But militiamen asked me to state so", Dzhemilev said.
As he said, against the young man plays the fact that with him there was found a mobile telephone of the murdered girl and blood traces on his clothes. However, as examination has shown, these were the traces of his blood.
Regional: Provocation against Mejlis
At the same time, Vasily Kiselyov, the people's deputy from the party of regions earlier leading the Crimean cell of the party, does not exclude that this provocation is directed against the chairman of the Mejlis, Mustafa Dzhemilev.
"The boy suspected of fulfillment of the murder studied well, he was perspective, and then got under bad influence. As far as I know, there were three murderers, but for some reason he took responsibility on himself. But I would agree with Mustafa Dzhemilev that, it is visible, the guy was used for kindling of international difference. Who needs it? There among the Crimean Tatars the situation is ambiguous: some accept Mustafa Dzhemilev, others - not. Well, as always, the race for power, for influence on the Crimean-Tatar people goes, but I would not dwell on only one version", Kiselyov informed.
Political scientist: the inter-confessional conflict in Crimea is kindled by the Kremlin
In his turn the political scientist, Victor Nebozhenko, in his comment to TSN.ua noticed that to extend messages that in Crimea are performed crimes on religious ground, is favourable for Russian power.
"Russia prepares for elections, and an unstable Ukraine will be favourable to shade results of activity of the Moscow tandem of Putin-Medvedev", Nebozhenko stated.
According to the political scientist, Donetsk and Lvov after the first provocations quickly departed, the new factor of instability that allows to shake the Ukrainian political boat therefore joins, which is the Crimean factor where any, even the most innocent action can turn to a revolt source. After this it is possible to predict only inter-confessional conflicts, Nebozhenko emphasized.
"Then we will be sure that everything that occurs has artificial character. But it does not remove responsibility from our power for that", the political scientist added.
It is interesting to notice that, according to ТSN.ua, for the first time the information on murder fulfillment on religious ground in Crimea appeared not on Ukrainian, but on the Russian site "Free press" ("Svobodnaya pressa").
Currently, the criminal case on the ground of crime provided by item 115 p.1 PC of Ukraine - premeditated murder is raised. The investigation is carried on.
