"The Crimean Tatar ornament is an important element of self-identification of the whole nation, an integral part of life of every Crimean Tatar family. Ornament is a means of transmitting knowledge from generation to generation in the cultural and historical aspects of the life of the people, so the knowledge of Ornek was preserved during the deportation of 1944", the Ministry explained.
