It is an unusual day for the capital although it is not the first time the Crimean Tatar Flag Day is celebrated in Kyiv. It is the day of joy and patriotism in the difficult times of the country.
The general rally on Independence Square started with the Crimean Tatar national anthem. The rally brought together not only the Crimean Tatars, but Kiev citizens a well, who specially came to support the Crimean Tatars on this important day.
The meeting was also attended by the Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People Refat Chubarov who thanked those present for their active stance and support.
He went on saying that, fortunately, all the activities planned in Crimea have been held successfully.
- The leader of the Kurultai of the Crimean Tatar People Noman Chelebedzhihan dreamed that each of the people living in Crimea would make a contribution to the mutual enrichment of the peninsula. But his dreams have not come true. And now, a new occupation ... And again, the Crimean Tatar flag has become a symbol of freedom, a symbol of the struggle against the occupiers not only for the Crimean Tatars, but for other Crimean residents as well. It is this flag the people associate with their hopes for the de-occupation of the peninsula, said the leader of the Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Dzhemilev.
He went on saying that the Crimean Tatar flag will be held along with the Ukrainian one in the liberated Crimean peninsula as it is the flag of the indigenous people of Crimea.
Kiyv citizens celebrated the Flag Day since on this day the whole of Ukraine can express their solidarity to the brotherly Crimean Tatar people.
- It is a very important day for me. I know, I'm sure that Crimean Tatars are the only tool in the de-occupation of Crimea, said a Crimean resident who participated in the rally.
Although the celebrations have been all over, the national flag will always be a symbol of unity, freedom and resistance for the Crimean Tatars.
