Ukrainian parliament recognized genocide of Crimean Tatar people
The corresponding draft resolution supported 245 MPs
The Verkhovna Rada adopted a resolution by which recognized the deportation of Crimean Tatars in May 1944 as the genocide of Crimean Tatar people. The draft resolution number 2493a was supported by 245 deputies.
"In May 1944, based on decisions of the State Defense Committee of the USSR, the Crimean Tatars were forcibly evicted from the territory of Crimea. As a result, more than 180 thousand of ethnic Crimean Tatars were forced to leave their homeland. According to various historical sources, the eviction was carried out in a rough way, with the confiscation of belonging to Crimean Tatars property and with the introduction of discrimination based on national origin. According to various estimates, more than 46% of migrants have died as a result of deportation carried out by the Soviet government. The exact number of victims is unknown," said in an explanatory note to the draft resolution.
It is noted that the adoption of the draft resolution would have the effect of recognition of the genocide of the Crimean Tatar people's deportation of Crimean Tatars from the Crimea in May 1944, as well as the expression of solidarity and support to Crimean Tatars, to attract the attention of the international community to the crime that was committed against Crimean Tatar people, and to prevent the commitment of such acts against it in the future.
