Crimean authorities have not yet given a permission to conduct May 18 mourning rally in Simferopol, dedicated to 70th anniversary of Deportation of 1944.
Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Jemilev said this in his interview to “Echo of Moscow” radio.
“It is the largest rally held in Crimea, the square will be overcrowded. The rally will be attended by some 30-40 thousand people. The leaders deliver a speech, summarizing what was made on restoration of Crimean Tatar rights. The veterans of national movement and guests of the event also make a speech. Still, how will the things go this year is not clear. The authorities have not given the permission to conduct the mourning rally yet”- Jemilev said.
The mourning rally is being held annually, and is organized by Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people together with local authorities.
Following Crimea's annexation by Russia, the arrangement of mass demonstrations is to be agreed with the authorities. Unauthorized meetings are forbidden.
