Government funds have been allocated not to the Mejlis, but to the programs to meet the needs of Crimean Tatars, Refat Chubarov, Chairman of the Mejlis of Crimean Tatars and Ukrainian MP, said during the press conference ‘De-occupation of Crimea: Task for the State and Society for 2016’, according to a QHA correspondent. 

“A great responsibility lies on our shoulders now. We are considering now how to do this as transparently as possible. We are going to discuss this issue with the Deputy Minister of Finance today. Financing ATR TV channel will have certain priorities if we do not find other sources of financing,” said Chubarov.
