The leader of the Crimean Tatars, the Presidential Commissioner for the Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Dzhemilev met with the Ambassador for International Religious Freedom, Advisor to the US President on religious freedom in the world, David N. Saperstein. The meeting was held during his working trip to the United States, according to the information on his Facebook page.
At the meeting with the Ambassador Saperstein, Dzhemilev discussed violation of the right to worship in the annexed Crimea.
“We told the Ambassador about the "religious minorities" who are persecuted for their religious beliefs by the occupation authorities. Violations of the rights to freedom of religion have numerous examples, especially against the followers of "Hizb ut-Tahrir" and the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kiev Patriarchate. Moreover, numerous desecrations of the Crimean Tatars’ holy places have unfortunately become normal in the annexed Crimea,” Dzhemilev wrote.
At the conference timed to the 25th anniversary of Ukraine’s Independence in the United States, Mustafa Dzhemilev spoke about the state of human rights and freedoms in the annexed Crimea.
