Accustomed to voice the Moscow thoughts in respect of the representative body of the Crimean Tatars, the "Crimean Prosecutor" Natalia Poklonskaya got quite confused in directives received from Russia in her interview with Graham Phillips, British journalist, blogger and stringer, who was a staff member of Russia Today and Zvezda (Star) propaganda TV channels until March 2015.  

According to the "Prosecutor," there are no reprisals against the Crimean Tatars in Crimea.

“It is speculation, deceit and falsehood,” portraying credulity and innocence, Poklonskaya pronounces a phrase prepared for the Russia Today TV channel.

At the same time, journalist Graham Phillips, deported by SBU (Security Service of Ukraine) from Ukraine to Poland for a 3 year term in the interests of national security, sovereignty and Ukraine’s territorial integrity, diligently is working off the salary received from his Moscow curators, posting revelations of Poklonskaya on his Youtube account. 

By the way, Graham Phillips received a special "popularity" among media colleagues while covering Euromaidan activities in Ukraine in late 2013 and armed conflict in the East of Ukraine in early 2014.

“The Crimean Tatar people are not discriminated against. The indigenous people are asking us to protect them from such representatives of the Mejlis and close down this organization,” the new wordy passage by Poklonskaya is not original one.

According to her argument, a total of 1000 Crimean Tatars have written applications in support of the ban on Mejlis. However, according to public data, the number of population of Crimea in 2014 amounted to 1,967 million people, including 12% of Crimean Tatars.

In numerical terms, it is about 236 thousand representatives of the indigenous people of the peninsula. And whether Poklonskaya knows that less than 1% of all indigenous people in occupied Crimea have signed the declaration on the prohibition of the Crimean Tatars representative body. In this regard, there are big doubts. Playing figures "officials" do not care about fairness. And heart talks with the British journalist look like PR for those Crimean residents who are lured by occupation authorities and prefer humiliation and handouts from the Russian occupants.

On April 26, the Russia’s court in Crimea delivered a verdict in the Mejlis case, recognizing it an extremist organization and banning its activities in Russia, including Crimea. In her accusatory speech, Natalia Poklonskaya, the so-called “Crimea’s Prosecutor General,” accused the Mejlis of being “an extremist organization cooperating with the West and having links to terrorist organizations.”

As a proof of the Mejlis’s extremist activities, the Russian court admitted into evidence ‘Protest in the Woods’ article by Mustafa Jemilev, published in 1988. According to Mejlis Chairman Refat Chubarov, international organizations, including the United Nations, will respond to the banning of the Mejlis in Russian-occupied Crimea by taking relevant action.

Earlier evidence of alleged extremist activities Majlis of the court to adduce article Cemil "Glade protest in Crimea" 1988 edition. The head of the Majlis of the Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov said that in the coming days the international organizations, including the United Nations, respond with concrete action on the decision to ban the Russian Majlis of the Crimean Tatar people.

Nariman Jelyal, Mejlis First Deputy Chairman, said at the court hearing on April 26 that international organizations, such as the UN, the OSCE, the Turkish government, the United States and the European Union expressed their support for the Mejlis.
