According to ASTRA, Ilyushin, the senior lieutenant of justice for Bashkortostan, initiated a criminal case against Saitova for recording a video calling on the mobilized people to fight for their rights. She faces up to 6 years in prison.
In November 2021, Saitova was already convicted of calling for “extremism” and sentenced to 3 years in prison. She was given a term of detention pending trial and was released a year later.
In the summer of 2019, she put forward her candidacy for the post of the head of Bashkortostan.
Khabirov helps the regime to remove all Bashkort activists.
Since Bashkortostan is occupied, activists from the people are the only ones who fight for the rights of the people. If they are destroyed, the people will be destroyed.
