Russia displaces the indigenous inhabitants of the Crimea peninsula and brings RF citizens to Crimean territory thereby changing the national composition. The leader of the Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Dzhemilev made a corresponding statement at a press conference in Kyiv on May 12, QHA correspondent reports.
Dzhemilev noted that in this way the Russian Federation violates the paragraphs of the Geneva Convention on the Status of the Occupied Territories. Moreover, the very application of Russian legislation in the occupied territories is a violation of the convention as well.
"Prior to the occupation, we did not know the concept of "banned literature". After Ukraine was declared independent, we didn't have anything like that. And now the main reason for searches by the security forces is precisely this formulation," the leader of the Crimean Tatar people said.
Earlier, the leader of the Crimean Tatars Mustafa Dzhemilev said that following the occupation of the Crimea by Russia the number of students in the Ukrainian language reduced by 36 times on the peninsula.
