In an interview with the journalists before the coordination meeting of law enforcement agencies on counter-terrorism and extremism, the self-proclaimed Crimean Prosecutor Natalia Poklonskaya voiced the need to strengthen the fight against extremism and terrorism in the territory of Russia-annexed peninsula, reported the Crimean pro-government "mouthpiece" "Kryminform."
- It is necessary to strengthen measures aimed at countering extremism and terrorism since the Crimean issue is the main topic of conversation and speculation outside Russia. In neighboring Ukraine, near the border there are radicals, as well as people accused of a number of particularly serious crimes and wanted by Russian law enforcement agencies. They are safely hiding in Ukraine and continue to commit criminal acts against the Crimean people, said Poklonskaya.
According to Poklonskaya, it is, in particular, about the Coordinator of the Crimean Civil Blockade, Lenur Islyamov and Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People, Refat Chubarov.
Today, Ukraine honors the Crimean Tatar Remembrance Day of Genocide and Solidarity. May 18, 1944 the Soviet authorities conducted mass deportation of the Crimean Tatars from Crimea, accusing them of collaborating with the Nazis. About 238 thousand Crimean Tatars were evicted and 46%, mostly the elderly, women and children were killed in special settlements in the first years of deportation.
Today, Kyiv and Ukraine are holding a number of events: actions and mass rallies, thematic lessons in schools, thematic initiatives by social activists dedicated to the 72th anniversary of deportation of the Crimean Tatar people.
