The Ukrainian parliament urged the international society to condemn and not recognize the ban of Mejlis of Crimean Tatars by the Russian authorities. 248 MPs voted for the respective bill.
In their address, the MPs ask international organizations and foreign parliaments to not recognize the puppet pro-Kremlin authorities of Crimea and the ban of Mejlis of Crimean Tatars. The lawmakers offered the international organizations to impose sanctions on pro-Russian ‘judges’ of the so-called ‘Supreme Court of the Republic of Crimea’ who supported the decision of Russia’s Supreme Court to consider the Mejlis a ‘terrorist organization’ and to ban any of its activity.
The Parliament turned to the UN Security Council, demanding to consider the ban of Mejlis an issue that undermines the international peace and security and poses threat for the entire Crimean Tatar people.
