Tymur Ibrahimov was born on January 26, 1985 in Uzbekistan, in the city of Yangiyul. When he was six years old, he returned to Crimea with his family. Tymur entered the Faculty of Foreign Languages Philology. During his studies, he worked in a cafe. Since 2007, he repaired and sold computer equipment and phones. He opened his own business. In November 2008, Tymur married Dilyar. They have four children - two sons and two daughters. His father was killed by an unknown assailant when Tymur was ten years old. So Tymur actively helped low-income families and those who were left without a breadwinner. In 2014, he became a citizen journalist. Thanks to his materials, Ukrainian TV channels were able to show what was happening in Crimea after the annexation by Russia. On October 2, 2017, representatives of the Russian secret services came to Tymur's house. After the search he was detained on suspicion of "terrorism". On September 16, 2020, the Southern District Military Court in Rostov-on-Don sentenced Tymur to 17 years in prison. Now Ibrahimov is in pre-trial detention facility No. 3 in Novocherkassk, awaiting the consideration of his appeal.

Despite his stay in the special unit - the room is 2 by 2 meters, he never complains about the conditions or his state of health, even though he has a disability (Tymur can only see with one eye).

"For four years now, he has always been fine," says his mother, Niyara Ibrahimova, "He never says anything. It's as if he is in a sanatorium.
