#where_is_Ervin

Too many sad anniversaries. Today it’s a year since Ervin Ibragimov was abducted in Bakhchisaray, Crimea. Although his abduction was clearly captured on CCTV, no one has been charged; Ervin has not been found, nor have most of the others who have disappeared since annexation in 2014.

When my dad died, for a little, black while I envied people whose family members were missing, because they still had hope that their loved one would come back. We all hope they will come back. But here is Abdureshit Dzhepparov, whose son and nephew were abducted in Crimea in 2014: “I start thinking about my son, and my second son. Is he alive or not alive, killed or not killed, how did they kill him, how have they tortured him…”

I’m not sure what can be harder than that.

My article here from last year, on Crimea’s disappeared.
