Lenur Islyamov, a spokesman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, owner of the ATR TV channel, believes Russia to replace its protégés in the occupied peninsula in the nearest time, he said in an interview with the Glavcom.

- Russia is cooking a stock, but it ought to skim the scum for it to be clear and transparent. It gave Crimea to current Russian authorities, as to Makhno followers, for the first time to plunder - get drunk, eat up. They have pressed Ukrainian oligarchs and Ukrainian patriots, and now they’ll "rip off" their own current authorities, said Islyamov.

The Mejlis spokesman also said such a pattern has been traced from the reign of Peter I.

- From the times of Peter I, in Russia the governors gorge, drunk, heaped up riches, and then Peter I cast them to exile in Siberia, all their riches were taken away and lapsed to the treasury. Soon the same story will be here and Aksenov will see it, said Islyamov.

As QHA reported earlier, the initiative group of Crimean Tatars and Ukrainian patriots announced the arrangments of a peaceful Crimea-Ukraine border blockade due to the continuous reprisals to the Crimean Tatar people and other nationalities residing in Crimea.
