President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that forced confinement of one of the leaders of the Crimean Tatar People Ilmi Umerov in a psychiatric hospital is the return to the Stalin era.
One of the leaders of the Crimean Tatar people Ilmi Umer has been put into a psychiatric hospital. We see that the Stalin era of 30-ies of the XX century goes back, reported the press service of the Presidential Administration citing Poroshenko as saying in an interview with US TV Channel CNN.
The Head of State stressed that this is one more additional argument proving that the international community should team up in order to ensure global security.
This is not only Ukraine’s problem, it is a world problem. As a global leader the United States should be on guard of global security along with us, said Poroshenko.
The President went on to say that today, hundreds of Ukrainians are taken hostage, held in jails in Russia and the occupied territories as well.
The President urged all the democratic world to be in solidarity with Ukraine and increase pressure on Russia as an aggressor country since it violates the international law, as well as the rights and freedoms of Ukrainians in the occupied territories of our country.
Foreign Ministers are due to meet next week within the framework of the OSCE activities. The Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin, who is also to be present, will call on the partner countries to increase pressure on Russia in order to release political prisoners, in particular Ilmi Umerov.
