He was born in the village of Ayvasil, Yalta district.

“On May 18 we were awakened from sleep by loud knocking on the door. At the door stood an officer and two soldiers with machine guns. They ordered everyone to gather their belongings and immediately gather outside.

We were brought to the Simferopol train station and loaded into cars intended for the transport of horses. There were so many people that there was enough space only to sit. As to any facilities, there were none.”

Dilyaver returned to Crimea in 1989.
