September 16, 2015. Speaking at the Verkhovna Rada, Refat Chubarov, Head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatars, has announced the exact date and time of launching the economic blockade.
According to Refat Chubarov, the blockade is to commence at 12:00 p.m. on September 20, 2015. The Crimean Tatars are going to block all three roads to Crimea from the mainland Ukraine. The action will affect only cargo transport but not people and car movement.
“I would like to note that it will be a long-term action. During that period, the bills on settlement of issues related to cooperation between Ukraine and the occupied Crimea should be considered. The Law ‘On Free Economic Zone of Crimea’ must be canceled. We deem it advisable to create a free economic zone in Kherson region bordering Crimea,” said Refat Chubarov.
He also called on everyone who supports the initiative to arrive at the headquarters of action located near Chongar checkpoint, Kherson region, on September 20, 2015.
