Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Jemilev was denied entry to Moscow.
Jemilev arrived to Moscow from Ukraine’s capital Kyiv on May 2, expecting to fly to Simferopol, but was stopped at the passport control in Moscow airport.
Upon showing his Ukrainian passport to guards he was handed his passport back and told to go back where he came from.
Speaking to Turkish media on Friday, Crimean Tatar leader revealed his plan to defy a Russian ruling banning his entry to his homeland.
Jemilev was allegedly barred from entering Crimea for 5 years for criticizing the peninsula's annexation by Russia following a referendum in March.
Jemilev has since then spoken against current Crimean authorities.
