Mufti of Palestine illegally visits the annexed Crimea and calls it Russian

The Supreme Mufti of Jerusalem and Palestine, Sheikh Muhammad Ahmed Hussein illegally visited the annexed Crimea to participate in the so-called “Yalta International Economic Forum”.


This is reported by the portal of the Crimean occupation “government”, Sprotyv.info reports.

During the forum, Hussein met with the "head" of the Crimea Sergey Aksyonov and praised the local “power”.

The Mufti declared the occupied Crimea to be Russian, calling it “the advanced region of the Russian Federation in terms of the development of Muslim infrastructure.”

During the meeting, the Supreme Mufti of Jerusalem and Palestine conveyed congratulations from Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

Attending the meeting with Aksyonov was also the pro-Russian "Mufti of the Muslims of Crimea", Emirali Ablaev and the head of the Religious Administation of Muslims of the European part of Russia, Ravil Gaynutdinov.

All this happened against the backdrop of massive raids, numerous arrests and fabricated cases against Crimean Muslims.
