The decision "to suspend the activities of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People," rendered by the so-called Crimean Prosecutor Natalaya Poklonsky, has no legal force. The Ukrainian government is doing everything possible in order to hold her responsible for all the crimes committed, Ukraine’s MP Georgy Logvinsky wrote on Facebook.
- We are taking steps so that the international community imposes new sanctions and continues with the old ones. The perpetrators must be held liable and put on the international wanted list, he said.
The MP went on saying the relevant documents are udnerway.
- My colleagues and I are working out a draft law against those who must be held liable. We will defend the Mejlis since it is not an organization, but a self-governing body of the indigenous people who has not betrayed Ukraine, said Logvinsky.
