Russian lawyer Mark Feigin, representing the interests of the Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Ilmi Umerov, initiates the adoption of resolutions by the US Congress and the European institutions to support Crimean Tatars politically persecuted by Russia.
“With regard to the persecution of the Crimean Tatars, we will initiate the adoption of resolutions by the US Congress and the European institutions. I have already spoken about it,” he wrote on Twitter.
According to Mark Feigin, if the Kremlin does not stop the criminal prosecution of the Crimean Tatars, Russia could face a large-scale campaign of civil disobedience in Crimea.
In his interview with QHA, Russian lawyer Nikolai Polozov said that the repression against the Crimean Tatars is just beginning and the firm position of the indigenous people of Crimea will cause the active rejection by Russian security forces in future.
For more than two years of occupation of Crimea, about 35 thousand people have left the peninsula for fear of persecution and repressions. Murders and searches in the homes of the Crimean Tatars, arrests and intimidation of independent journalists are everyday reality in the occupied Crimea.
In April, the occupants called the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people extremist organization and banned its activities in Russia and Crimea. The representatives of the European Union condemned the actions of Russian authorities, the Council of Europe called on to end the repression against the Crimean Tatars, the UN has threatened Russia with serious consequences, and the US demanded to lift a ban on Mejlis and de-occupy Crimea.
According to the Prosecutors General’s Office of Ukraine, more than 90 criminal proceedings over the illegal imprisonment and searches in the homes of the Crimean Tatars have been registered since the occupation of Crimea.
