A book called “Memory book of Eastern Crimea “Asked to remember” that justifies
deportation of the Crimean Tatar people from Crimea in 1944 was published in Crimea. The publication was prepared by
Vladimir and Maria Shirshovi and financed from Kirovskiy district budget. The book contains xenophobic statements,
aimed at incitement of ethnic and religion hatred, first deputy head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov said on his Facebook page.
Presentation of the book should have taken place on July 25 at Kirovskiy district state administration. Press announce was placed on the official site of the administration with the comment “…tribute to those who died for the Motherland
to ensure the victory over the enemy.”
Refat Chubarov says that one day before the presentation the book became available to Kirovskiy district Mejlis, which in turn informed Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people.
“Some information in the book not only contradicts historical facts, but is deliberately falsified, for which authors and those who contributed to the book may carry criminal responsibility”, writes Mr. Chubarov.
Presentation of the book didn’t take place.
According to Mr. Chubarov, currently, representatives of Crimean Tatar community are preparing appeals to the
prosecutor’s office, demanding legal assessment of such actions of the book authors and officials who used public funds for printing and distribution of a book, aimed at inciting ethnic and religious hatred.
