Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Dzhemilev has nearly 100% chance to win his appeal to be allowed to enter his homeland of Crimea in a top European court, Russian lawyer Mark Feygin said during an interview on 112 Ukraine TV channel.

“Naturally, the appeal on the Russian court’s decision was turned down. However, according to our plan, we will file another appeal to the Supreme Court of Russia, and then we’ll go for the European Court for Human Rights. Our only hope lies with the European court, where there’s almost a hundred-percent chance to win the case”, Feygin said. 

Previously, a Moscow city court recognized the decision by the Russian authorities in Crimea to ban Dzhemilev from entering the Black Sea Peninsula. Mark Feygin also stated his client’s intention to file an appeal to the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation.

The decision to ban Dzhemilev was made by Russian authorities after Moscow’s illegal occupation and annexation of Crimea in 2014.
