“We share the concern of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people about disappearance of Crimean Tatars in Crimea”- reads the post written in Crimean Tatar language.
To recall, Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people has appealed to the UN, the OSCE and the international community in general with the request to reinforce their efforts to prevent the escalation of violence against the civilian population in Crimea.
In the beginning of March, Simferopol resident, pro-Ukrainian activist Reshat Ametov was kidnapped and found dead after 2 weeks. The incident has not been detected and the guilty persons have not been punished yet.
