BRUSSELS (QHA) -

In Brussels, in the walls of the European Parliament, during the conference on the de-occupation of Crimea, the screening of the film "Mustafa" was held, which tells about the leader of the Crimean Tatar people, Ukrainian MP Mustafa Dzhemilev.

At the screening, which was attended by Dzhemilev himself, the People's Deputy told the audience that about 46% of the Crimean Tatars perished during the years of Stalin's deportation in 1944.

Deputies of the European Parliament, diplomats, civil society activists, including student youth, applauded the leader of the Crimean Tatars, expressing respect for his courage and steadfastness in the struggle for the rights of his people in the conditions of Soviet totalitarianism and Russian aggression.

The leader of the Crimean Tatars noted that tens of thousands of Crimean Tatars are forced to leave their homes today due to the annexation of the Crimea.

“Today Ukraine is on the front line of the struggle against the aggressor. Supporting Ukraine and opposing the Russian occupation of the Crimea, the world community supports and protects its values," Dzhemilev stressed.

The European Parliament deputy Rebecca Harms, who organized the visit of the delegation of the Crimean Tatars to Brussels, agreed with him and echoed his comment.

"If we cannot help the Crimea, we cannot help ourselves," the German politician believes.
