According to the politician, the decision by the occupation authorities to ban the Mejlis prepares the grounds for the Crimean Tatar repeated deportation and genocide.
“Ban on Mejlis in Crimea is the Kremlin's signal to the repeated deportation and genocide of the Crimean Tatars. Russian imperialism is preparing new crimes,” Kyrylenko wrote in his Twitter.
On April 26, the Russia’s court in Crimea delivered a verdict in the Mejlis case, recognizing it an extremist organization and banning its activities in Russia, including Crimea.
In her accusatory speech delivered on April 26, Natalia Poklonskaya, the so-called ‘Crimea’s Prosecutor General,’ accused the Mejlis of being ‘an extremist organization cooperating with the West and having links to terrorist organizations’.
As a proof of the Mejlis’s extremist activities, the Russian court admitted into evidence ‘Protest in the Woods’ article by Mustafa Jemilev, published in 1988. According to Mejlis Chairman Refat Chubarov, international organizations, including the United Nations, will respond to the banning of the Mejlis in Russian-occupied Crimea by taking relevant action.
Nariman Jelyal, Mejlis First Deputy Chairman, said at the court hearing on April 26 that international organizations, such as the UN, the OSCE, the Turkish government, the United States and the European Union expressed their support for the Mejlis.
