Yesterday, Oct 20 MP Mustafa Dzhemilev, the leader of the Crimean Tatar people, and MP Refat Chubarov, the Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, met the former US Ambassador to Ukraine at the representative office of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar in Kyiv.
The US visitor arrived in Ukraine with his wife Suzanne to celebrate the 400th anniversary of theological schools in Ukraine and Kyiv-Mohyla Academy. In the US, Miller is a member of the Kyiv Mohyla Academy supervisory board. After Ukraine declared its independence 24 years ago, William Miller was the second US ambassador in Kiev and was on diplomatic service in 1990s.
The US guest was interested in Crimean and the Crimean Tatars’ situation, especially, human rights violations by Russian occupation authorities, in particular, the problems of those who are now under arrest and investigation. Mustafa Dzhemilev and Refat Chubarov told the guests about the Crimean occupation and its consequences: the arrests of the Mejlis members and activists, criminal cases, searches and persecutions. Another one question touched upon was the problems of the Crimean displaced persons who have started leaving for mainland Ukraine after the so-called Crimean referendum March 2014.
At the end of the talk the ex-Ambassador who had visited Crimea in course of his diplomatic work in Ukraine said he would again visit the peninsula when Crimea is free and open.
