The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry released a statement condemning a decision to suspend operation of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatars made by Crimea’s self-proclaimed Prosecutor General.
The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry strongly protests the decision to suspend operation of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatars in the temporarily occupied Crimean Autonomous Republic made by Crimea’s self-proclaimed Prosecutor General.
The decision is but another crime perpetrated by the Russian occupation authorities against representatives of the Crimean Tatars, an indigenous people of Crimea. In so doing, the Russian Federation violated its international commitments as an occupying power, as well as the United Nations Convention on Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination.
In the last two years, the Kremlyn has turned Ukraine’s Crimea into a territory of oppression, harassment, persecution, as well massive violations of fundamental rights and freedoms.
In view of the above, Russia’s accusing the Mejlis of being an extremist organization looks particularly cynical.
Despite Russia’s aggression against Ukraine and its occupation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol being resolutely condemned by Ukraine and democratic countries, the Kremlin continues to blatantly disregard international law and just demands of the entire civilized world by committing acts of aggression against Ukraine.
Ukraine calls on all democratic countries of the world to demand from Russia to cease massive violations of fundamental rights and freedoms in Crimea, grant access to the temporarily occupied Autonomous Republic of Crimea to international human rights organizations and join efforts for de-occupying Crimea.
