Mejlis Chairman Refat Chubarov made a guest appearance on the ‘Right to Rule’ live TV show where he spoke about factors that might help de-occupy Crimea faster. According to Chubarov, three factors are to be met to get Crimea back.

“Three factors are to be met in order to de-occupy Crimea: toughening sanctions, boosting Ukraine’s defense potential, including getting lethal weapons, and putting one’s own house in order, i.e. implementing reforms,” said Mejlis Chairman.

It was reported earlier that the Europarliament adopted a resolution condemning unprecedented levels of human rights abuses, most notably against Crimean Tatars, as well as severe restriction of the freedom of speech and association in Crimea.
