The first and last president of Crimea, who had been declared persona non grata in Ukraine for separatist ideas Yuri Meshkov, came back to Crimea.
In his interview to ATR TV channel, he noted that he feels a citizen of Crimea and finally returned to his motherland.
“People of Crimea gave me back my motherland”, noted Meshkov.
“This will be our final and irrevocable victory, on Sunday,”- he added.
The leader of Crimean separatists Meshkov was elected president of Crimea on January 30, 1994. During his presidency, he had constant conflicts with the Crimean Parliament.
In March 1995, there was a strong escalation of conflict, which almost led to armed clashes. Then Kyiv interfered the situation.
On March 17, 1995, the Ukrainian Parliament abolished the constitution of Crimea and about 40 more laws of Crimea, including on the institution of presidency.
Meshkov left for Russia, but returned in 2011. On July 13, 2011 the district administrative court of Crimea supported the ruling of the Ukraine’s Security Service on the expulsion of Meshkov from the territory of Ukraine with the restriction of entry for 5 years.
