Activists gathered outside the building of the Consulate General of Russia in Odessa to protest against the ban on the Crimean Tatar Mejlis and recognition of it an extremist organization, the "Ukrainian Information Service" reports.
About two dozen residents of Odessa brought the photos of victims in the annexed Crimea. They called on the Russian authorities to stop putting pressure on the Crimean Tatar people.
The activists placed the grave lights with grains in memory of the 1944 deportation of Crimean Tatars beside the consulate fence.
On April 26, the so-called Supreme Court of the Crimea banned the Mejlis in the territory of the Russian Federation and annexed Crimea.
Today, 29 September, the court hearing to consider the appeal against the decision of the so-called Supreme Court of the Crimea of April 26, 2016 to recognize the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people extremist organization and ban its activity is being held in Moscow.
