Chairman of the Majlis of the Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov confirms plans of activists to block administrative border with the Crimea.
"Either on 20th or 21st of September, we block that border. The decision is made by us," he said at a parliamentary factions meeting, Krym.Realii. According to Chubarov, the action is carried out not only "in connection with the repression of the Russian authorities against the Crimean Tatar people on the peninsula, but also in connection with the unsuccessful actions of the Ukrainian government".
Earlier, leaders of the Crimean Tatars have announced their intention to block the administrative border with the Crimea to prevent the import of Ukrainian goods to the peninsula. According to the national leader of the Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Dzemilev, "Ukraine should not supply the occupation regime in Crimea".
