The decision of the Russian Supreme Court to ban the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatars contributes to further unity of the Crimean Tatar people, said the Deputy Secretary General of the World Congress of the Crimean Tatars and the Head of the Union of Crimean Tatars in Lithuania Adas Jakubauskas, Anadolu agency reports.
According to him, the banning will rally the Crimean Tatars and the Mejlis will continue to work in Kiev.
“How does the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatars, created in 1991 and representing the interests of the people, can be an extremist organization? Occupants have made a decision in contradiction to their interests. They will not achieve anything due to these methods,” Jakubauskas said.
The Deputy Secretary General said that the International community will fully support the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatars. According to him, the Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatars, the Ukrainian MP Mustafa Dzhemilev is nominated for the annual award of the European Parliament 'For Freedom of Thought' named after Andrei Sakharov.
“We are constantly in touch with the leaders of the Crimean Tatars and we should assist the Mejlis in further safe and free work in Kiev. Unfortunately, the problem of the Crimean Tatars is still on the agenda, despite the events occurring in the world, including the war in Syria,” Jakubauskas said.
He went on saying, that the Crimean Tatars of Lithuania would like to visit the Crimea, but they can not due to the political reasons. Earlier, the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation upheld the decision on recognition the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatars (MCT) an extremist organization.
