    The Muslim Tatar community in Crimea has suffered many hardships since Russia annexed the peninsula in 2014.

    Long neglected under Ukraine, many Tatars also opposed the Russian takeover.

    Now their parliament has been outlawed, and many prominent activists have either been arrested or gone missing.
