The U.S., Western Europe and Turkey will open centers, which coordinate the work of the Crimean Tatar diaspora, stated leader of the Crimean Tatar national movement in Ukraine and worldwide Refat Chubarov, Krymr.

Crimean Tatars worldwide must be activated to return de-facto control over Crimea to Ukraine. "To coordinate the activities, we are working on the creating of some of these centers of Congress [World Congress of Crimean Tatars] and the Majlis; they will be established in some countries. We started this work in Washington and in New York already. The second step is Brussels and Warsaw. And, of course, Ankara, this is clear," said Chubarov.

Head of Majlis said that the Crimean and Ukrainian Diaspora must work together. "We see the work of the Ukrainian diaspora. In Poland and Canada, we are doing it together" - added Chubarov.

10 thousand Crimean Tatars left their homes because of the Russian anexation of Crimea in 2014. 76 families came back to the peninsula from different deportation places, but none of them was allowed to stay in Crimea.
