A bill to recognize Crimean Karaites and Krymchaks small indigenous peoples of Crimea to be introduced into Russian Parliament on June 25, vice speaker of Crimean Parliament Remzi Ilyasov announced.
“A bill to recognize Crimean Karaites and Krymchaks small indigenous peoples of Crimea will be introduced into Russian Parliament on June 25. We are sure, the bill will be adopted”- Ilyasov said.
He also noted, that according to Russian laws, peoples with less than 50,000 members are declared small-numbered.
Crimea was annexed by Russia, following the referendum on March 16.
The Russian Parliament passed several bills allowing Crimea’s accession into the federation and on March 21 they were signed into law by President Vladimir Putin.
On March 20, 2014, Ukrainian Parliament adopted a resolution recognizing Crimean Tatars indigenous people of Crimea. The resolution guarantees the protection and realization of ethnic, cultural, language, religious and other rights of Crimean Tatars and other ethnic minorities in Ukraine.
Note: Crimean Karaites are an ethnic group derived from Turkic-speaking adherents of Karaism in Eastern Europe, especially in the territory of the former Russian Empire. Defined themselves as originally centered in Crimea, Crimean Karaites were established in Trakai, Lithuania and Eastern Galicia since late medieval times.
Krymchaks are an ethno-religious community of Crimea derived from Turkic-speaking adherents of Rabbinic Judaism. They have historically lived in close proximity to the Crimean Karaites.
