The President Petro Poroshenko believes the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People has been banned for fear of the self-organization of free people.

- Arrests and political trials of representatives of the Crimean Tatar people – it is not enough for them, they decided to ban the Mejlis! I appeal to the international community: every day of the occupation carries a new threat for Crimean residents, President wrote on Twitter.

According to Poroshenko, the only way to stop the arbitrariness of the Russian invaders against the Crimean Tatars is to stop the annexation of Crimea.

As QHA reported earlier, the self-proclaimed "Crimean Prosecutor" Natalia Poklonskaya made a decision "to suspend the activities of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People."
