Mustafa Jemilev speaking at the press conference "German OSCE Chairmanship - the best of times for protection of human rights in Donbas and Crimea” expressed his concern about the fate of Crimea in the context of the Minsk agreements.
“The main drawback of the Minsk agreements is the fact that we are talking only about the eastern part of Ukraine, and Crimea remains sidelined. If sanctions have been lifted after the return of Donbas, the conflict in Crimea will be frozen, and the indigenous people – the Crimean Tatars – be threatened with extinction,” said Jemilev.
He also noted that sanctions are the most important tool for de-occupation of Crimea.
“As of now, about 35 thousand people, of which 17 thousand Crimean Tatars have left Crimea. We urge them not to leave their homeland, but since there are arrests, killings and searches - this stream of people cannot be stopped. As of the end of 2015, there were more than 200 searches - over 95% - in homes and mosques of the Crimean Tatars. There are no rights and laws; there is only the desire to assimilate the Crimea and to make it an ordinary Russian region. The only way out is sanctions, and so effective that make the aggressor leave our territory,” said the Leader of the Crimean Tatars.
Moreover, Mustafa Jemilev said that now the only hope of the Crimean Tatar people is the world community.
