The leader of the Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Dzhemilev urged the international community to extend sanctions against the entire Southern Federal District, which by Putin's decree from now on has occupied Crimea within its composition, reported a QHA correspondent.
- I think we need to appeal to all international organizations, in particular the European Union, all countries that have imposed sanctions on the occupied Crimea so that these sanctions should be extended against the whole district since from now on it includes the occupied peninsula as well, Dzhemilev told the representatives of the Diplomatic Missions in Ukraine during a launch of a photo exhibition "Missing and Killed during the occupation of Crimea by the Russian Federation."
Dzhemilev went on saying that Putin's actions can only be interpreted as an attempt to lift sanctions from Crimea having made it part of the Russia’s Federal District.
July, 28 by Putin's decree, the so-called Crimean Federal District (temporarily occupied territory of Crimea) was abolished as an independent unit and entered the Southern Federal District.
The Foreign Affairs Ministry of Ukraine voiced protest over the decision to make the temporarily Russia-occupied territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol a part of the Southern Federal District.
