KYIV (QHA) -

The draft resolution on the violation of human rights in the occupied Crimea, prepared by Ukraine and presented today in Kyiv, is expected to be one of the tools in struggle for peninsula’s liberation, Akhtem Chiygoz, the Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People noted.

“All mechanisms, resolutions, statements aimed at delivering clear characteristics of Russia's actions, and development of counteractions to attract international institutions are very important aspects in this direction. Of course, we should not expect the occupation to stop, the troops to be withdrawn, the Russia to declare the beginning of international standards implementation in case the resolution is properly compiled and adopted. But still, the fight must be continued persistently, and one day it would happen. I believe that, It would occur sooner than some people may think,” Chiygoz noted.  

He went on saying that his own release and the release of another Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People Ilmi Umerov is the result of the actions taken by Ukraine and the international community.

Reference: Ukraine to present a draft resolution "The situation on human rights in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol" in New York today, October 31.
