KYIV (QHA) -

At the request of the Ukrainian delegation, on April 28 the UN Security Council is to hold a session on the Ukrainian issues in the context of Russia's aggression.

According to the website of the Foreign Affairs Ministry, the meeting is to be attended by the Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Vadim Pristayko. Western diplomats are concerned over human rights violations in occupied Crimea and the ban on the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People.

On April, 26 the Russian occupants rendered a verdict in the "Mejlis case:" recognized it as an extremist organization and banned its activities in Russia, including occupied Crimea.

At a regular court hearing, the Crimean “Prosecutor" Nataliya Poklonskaya accused the Mejlis members of cooperation with the West and the links to "terrorist organizations."

Earlier, as a proof of the Mejlis’s extremist activities, the Russian court admitted into evidence ‘Protest in the Woods’ article published in 1988. According to Mejlis Chairman Refat Chubarov, international organizations, including the United Nations, will respond to the banning of the Mejlis in Russian-ocupied Crimea by taking relevant action.

Speaking at an April 26 hearing, Nariman Jelyal, Mejlis First Deputy Chairman, said that international organizations, such as the UN, the OSCE, the Turkish governments, the United States, the European Union, expressed their support for the Mejlis.
