Co-rapporteurs for the monitoring of Ukraine by PACE Jordi Xucla (Spain) and Axel Fischer (Germany) stated that the Russian Federation intends to ban Medjlis of the Crimean Tatar people because it opposes the annexation of Crimea, it is said on PACE website.

PACE monitors on Ukraine are deeply concerned about Russia’s intention to ban Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, based on the allegation that it is an extremist organization.

“Mejlis is an important instrument for representation and liberty of Crimean Tatar people. Ban of Mejlis just because it openly opposes unlawful annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation is ridiculous. It is incompatible with international standards and is a serious violation of rights of Crimean Tatars, whom, according to Russia, it had been willing to protect”, - the co-rapporteurs claimed.
