The Head of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People Refat Chubarov paid a working visit to Germany, where he held a number of meetings with Chancellor Angela Merkel, as well as took part in the panel discussion "German OSCE Chairmanship in 2016: a new impetus for human rights work in Donbas and Crimea", Ukraine’s Presidential Commissioner on the Affairs of the Crimean Tatar People reported on Facebook.
- Russia should not expect easing of sanctions until the end of 2016: no one is going to forgive it a treacherous violation of the international law, said Refat Chubarov commenting on the results of the talks and discussions.
The Mejlis Chairman also added that "Ukraine should hurry up with the homework since imitation of combat against deoligarchisation can end up in tears."
In 2016 Germany has taken over the OSCE Chairmanship. The presiding country intends to focus on solving the Ukrainian crisis and strengthening of various OSCE capabilities, including crisis management.
