Samet Güre said:

“My name is Samet Güre and my name is Salih Fidan. We came to Ukraine and we had a ticket to Dubai, and from Dubai to Erbil, but the soldiers forced us to go to Turkey. They said that at 8 o`clock we have a flight to Dubai, but they say lie, and we checked everything and there is no flight. We know that they are forcing us to go to Turkey. Now we are seeking asylum, we were talking with all these soldiers behind us. They are waiting there. But they do not let us write anything about it, we could not talk with their head, and they are forcing us.”

They were detained on December 31 and transferred to Kyiv Boryspil International Airport, where they are up to this day.**

They were under the supervision of the police but later on some Turkish Authorities also involved in the case. But it was not clear whether those Turkish officials members of the Turkish Embassy or Turkish Secret Service. They have return tickets to Erbil in transit through Dubai, but they were not allowed to board their plane. Moreover, the border service forced them to board an Istanbul flight.

Rebecca Harms, Human rights defender and Green Member of EUParliament 2004-2019, post a tweet and call the attention of the Ukrainian Authorities, some political figures, and some press member with it. And she also reminds us of the positive acts of Ukraine Prime minister in the field of human rights with the following sentences “I remember well that President Zelensky once personally invited people who suffer from political persecution and he promised asylum and even passports”
