MP of Ukraine, ex-head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Jemilev said that during the exacerbation of the situation in Crimea, Crimean Tatars took in a waiting position. However, at times it is difficult for him to hold back his compatriots from the desire to defend their native land.
“Crimean Tatars took in a waiting stand. We understand that the occupation forces only need a reason to continue with more actions,”- Jemilev noted at a briefing in Kyiv on Wednesday.
He also noted that peace in Crimea is very fragile and at any moment disturbances may occur. He placed great hope on the international community in resolution of the conflict in Crimea.
Jemilev emphasized that any normal citizen wants to respond if foreign soldiers step on his native land.
“It gets harder and harder for me to hold back my compatriots. People are angry, but at the same time they understand that they should not react to provocations,”- he said.
At the same time, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said that there are no Russian troops in Crimea.
