“The key delegations have once again condemned Russian aggression in Ukraine, including occupation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol, stressing that the illegal decision of the Russian occupant government to ban the Mejlis is a proof of ongoing repressions against the Crimean Tatar people”, reports the press service of Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry.

Taye-Brook Zerihoun, UN Assistant Secretary-General for political affairs, also expressed deep concern over the matter.
