The UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission called on Russia to lift the ban on the representative body of the Crimean Tatar people Mejlis. The monitoring mission noted that on September 29, 2016, the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation upheld the decision of the “Supreme Court” of Crimea on the prohibition of the Mejlis. The situation continues, despite the decision of the International Court of Justice. In 2017, the court ruled that the Russian Federation should refrain from restricting the representative bodies of Crimean Tatars, including the Mejlis. We urge the Russian Federation to comply with the UN court ruling and lift the ban on the Mejlis. https://www.facebook.com/UNHumanRightsUkraine/photos/a.594403654059015/1378828235616549/?type=3&theater Earlier, QHA media reported about the meeting of the former prisoner of the Kremlin, film-maker Oleg Sentsov, with the leaders of the Crimean Tatars in Kyiv. On May 18, the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people called on the UN to recognize the deportation of the Crimean Tatar people in 1944 as an act of genocide.
