Ukrainian flag was placed at the building of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people in Simferopol April 19 after Crimean Tatar leader, MP of Ukraine Mustafa Jemilev arrived in Crimea.
Police officers who arrived at the scene told that this may cause provocations and attacks at the building of Mejlis.
April 21, about 30 members of “self-defense forces” of Crimea came to Mejlis, broke into the building and took the flag down and put Crimean one instead.
As a result three women were harmed - the watchperson Zodie Salieva, spokesperson Leila Muslimova and the chief accountant of "Crimean Foundation" Marlena Seitasanova.
Commenting the incident, member of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people, head of charity organization “Fund “Crimea” Riza Shevkiev, told the placing of flag is legal.
“I personally am Ukrainian citizen, and the building of Mejlis belongs to social fund. According to Ukrainian and Russian laws, it is legal, to place the flags. And police is to maintain the order and prevent provocations”- he said.
