The Kremlin-appointed Deputy Prime Minister of Crimea Ruslan Balbec speaks ironically about Proshenko’s statement concerning the creation of the Crimean Tatar autonomy. The so-called Deputy Prime Minister believes that Ukraine’s President simply shows off for the Mejlis, reported TASS.
According to the "Deputy Prime Minister", Poroshenko knows that there is a very small number of the Crimean Tatars in Ukraine, as well as the completely loyal to them Mejlis.
- Crimean Tatars live in Russia’s Crimea and take loud Poroshenko’s statements as a humorous TV show, said Balbec.
He went on saying that the Ukrainian President "has a sight knocked out" since the majority of Crimean Tatars remain in the occupied peninsula.
- Trying to make out the Crimean Tatars as an outpost of the Ukrainian interests in the Black Sea is nothing but flattering. All Poroshenko’s statements on the national autonomy and other preferences are a heavenly music to the Mejlis, but in reality it's just hot air, said the collaborator.
As it was reported earlier, in the course of the Verkhovna Rada session to the Day of the Ukraine’s Constitution, Petro Poroshenko once again confirmed that the Basic Law of the country oughts to be amended in order to create the Crimean Tatar Autonomy in Crimea.
