Foreign Ministry condemns listing Mejlis as extremist organization by Russia
The Ministry noted, that repressions against Crimean Tatars on the occupied peninsula continue
Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine condemns the decision of the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation to put Mejlis of Crimean Tatars on the list of social and religious groups, banned on the grounds of extremist activities.
“Stalin repressions against indigenous people of Crimea continue. Outrageous violations of human rights. We strongly condemn such actions”, - press secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Mariana Betsa wrote on Twitter.
On April 18, Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation listed Mejlis of Crimean Tatars as extremist organization.
On April 13, Prosecutor of Crimea Natalia Poklonska suspended Mejlis of Crimean Tatars.
The decision to suspend Mejlis will be in force until Supreme Court of Crimea rules on Poklonska’s appeal. Earlier, she demanded to recognize Mejlis an extremist organization. The lawsuit is currently at the stage of consideration.
Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people, in the periods between sessions of Kurultay, is the only executive organ of Crimean Tatars, elected by Kurultay among its delegates. Kurultay is the highest institute of state authority of the Crimean Tatar people, summoned amid turning points in their history.
