Russia should rehabilitate itself before us for the crime of 1944.
Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Jemilev said this commenting a decree on the rehabilitation of the Crimean Tatars signed by Russian President Vladimir Putin April 21.
“We somehow do not need rehabilitation from Russia. Russia should rehabilitate itself before us for the crime of 1944”- he said.
Mustafa Jemilev, believes that adopted decree is a political move to strengthen Russia's policy on the peninsula and considers its adoption late.
"Why did they decide to issue this decree after the occupation of our territory - an interesting question for us. Of course, Russia should participate in solving social problems that we have, but it should be done within the framework of agreements between our countries ... Russia immediately after the declaration of the Russian Federation in 1991 should have proclaimed that the deportation was a crime, assumed obligations on the return and settlement of the Crimean Tatars on their own land,"- the leader emphasized.
To recall, April 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on the rehabilitation of the Crimean Tatars and other Crimean peoples affected by repression in the Stalin years.
