Ukrainian government does not respond to any calls of the resolution of Parliamentary Assembly of OSCE "On reunification of the divided Europe: Promoting human rights and civil liberties in the OSCE region in the XXI century".

First Vice-Chairman of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people, member of Parliament of Crimea Refat Chubarov said this at a press conference dedicated to the Day of Remembrance of Victims of Nazism and Stalinism.

“If the state of Ukraine responded to all the calls, then I think we could have avoided many absurdities that happen today. We need to respond especially to those appeals, which recommend the State to take actions to exclude insulting the memory of victims and justification of crimes committed by the two totalitarian regimes - Nazism and Stalinism. But we still hope that our activities will give results and civil liberty and human rights in our country will not be just an empty sound,” stressed Chubarov.

The meeting dedicated to the All-European Day of Remembrance of victims of Nazism and Stalinism will take place on August 23 at the memorial for victims of deportation in Simferopol.

The meeting is organized by Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people, together with the Ukrainian national-democratic organizations and the youth organization "Yashlar Shurasy."

“As you know, this day was defined by “Vilnius resolution” of OSCE in 2009. This event has been held for four years in a row, within the framework of events carried out in Europe. People take active part in such events, so we expect 800-1000 people to come to the meeting.” - Chubarov said.

Note: Resolution of the Parliamentary Assembly of the OSCE "Reunification of Divided Europe: Promoting human rights and civil liberties in the OSCE region in the XXI century" - an official document of the OSCE, condemning the crimes of the Stalinist and Nazi regimes and offering August 23, the day of the signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, to be the day of commemoration of victims of Nazism and Stalinism - was adopted on July 3, 2009 in Vilnius.
