Forum of Crimean Tatar youth kicks off in Kyiv
The event will gather about 200 participants from across the world
The two-day international youth forum “Future of Crimea”, held in the Ukrainian capital is supposed to collect Crimean Tatar leaders from various countries to shape up the international society’s views on the peninsula’s future (Radio Liberty).
According to the forum’s initiator Gulnara Muratova, the organizers received some 400 applications; about a half of those, aged from 18 to 35, joined the event. The participants come from different region of Ukraine and the Crimean Tatar diaspora abroad. Many of them will come from Turkey, Poland, Romania, Lithuania and Germany.
Tens of thousands of Crimean Tatars (35,000, according to the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people) were forced to leave their native land after Russia’s illegal annexation of the peninsula in late February 2014.
