The People's Front faction in the Ukrainian parliament supported the appeal of the Mejlis Chairman Refat Chubarov to world leaders. Speaking at the Verkhovna Rada, Maksym Burbak, leader of the People's Front parliamentary faction, said:
“The Russian Federation has committed another crime against our compatriots. The decision to suspend the activities of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people confirms that Russia is the successor of Stalin's course.
Deputies of the People's Front faction support the Head of the Mejlis of Crimean Tatars Refat Chubarov, Leader of the Crimean Tatars Mustafa Jemilev and all the Crimean Tatar people. We support the appeal to world leaders to prevent the aggressor country. We say that the struggle for the Crimean Tatars, for Nadezhda Savchenko and for everyone who has been held hostage in the Russian Federation, should be a priority for the Ukrainian authorities.”
