During the meeting with the Speaker of the Swedish Parliament the leader of the Crimean Tatar People Mustafa Dzhemilev stressed that the Mejlis does not recommend the Crimean Tatars, who now left Crimea, to move to Turkey or other countries.
The best option for them is to take up residence in the regions bordering Crimea - then it will be easier for them to return home following de-occupation of the peninsula.
The Speaker of the Swedish Parliament Urban Ahlin took interest in the Crimean Tatar history, the details of their deportation from Crimea in 1944, as well as the current situation in the peninsula.
Dzhemilev told that during the mass return of Crimean Tatars to their homeland in 90s, only a small part of them could return to the places where they lived before - the Southern Coast of Crimea since the housing prices went up greatly.
A separate topic was the ability of various human rights missions to visit annexed Crimea today. According to Dzhemilev, European politicians, who visited Crimea following the annexation, failed to describe the real situation on the peninsula as the self-proclaimed authorities are not interested in showing the real situation.
According to Mustafa Dzhemilev, the Council of Europe mission led by Gerard Stoudmann, which visited Crimea in January, delivered a rather mild report in order to get a further opportunity to visit Crimea.
The Turkish delegates were going to do the same, but today the Mejlis’s stance is covering the real events in Crimea. If the European politicians want to act more gently, their actions won’t be supported by the Crimean Tatar people, who are currently suffering because of human rights violations in Crimea.
The leader of the Crimean Tatar People also told Urban Ahlin about the Committee established in Stockholm and aimed to support Dzhemilev during his exile in 1979. According to the Speaker, this support is very important for the Crimean Tatars, especially in such a difficult period of history.
Dzhemilev also invited the Speaker of the Swedish Parliament to visit Kyiv and meet with the Mejlis.
