(QHA) -

Warnings and further ban for Crimean Tatar leaders on entry Crimea for 5 years has contributed to reduce of activity of those, striving for inciting interethnic hatred.

Crimean Prosecutor General Natalia Poklonskaya said this in an interview with Russian TASS agency.

“Our task is to prevent disputes in the sphere of interethnic relations, as the edge of this issue is very sharp. Those warnings that were twice issued to Refat Chubarov against extremist activity were the right decision- Poklonskaya said. Activity of those who tried to incite conflicts in Crimea has reduced”.

To recall, Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Jemilev was banned from entering Crimea for 5 years. Thousands of Crimean Tatars were fined for meeting him at Ukrainian-Crimean border in May.

Head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov was also banned entry Crimea.

Both leaders were accused of “inciting interethnic conflict”.
