On Thursday, May 18, leader of the Narodnyi Front political party Arseniy Yatsenyuk during his visit to Ottawa took part in the ceremony of raising the Crimean Tatar flag on the Day of Remembrance of Crimean Tatar Genocide Victims. This was reported by the party's press service.
The flag was raised at the administrative building of the capital of Canada with the participation of Mayor of Ottawa, Jim Watson, representatives of the Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar communities.
Arseniy Yatsenyuk addressed to those present in the Crimean Tatar language: "Yaşasın Ukraina! Yaşasın Qırımtatar milleti".
"The Russian Federation has made an international crime, but the time will come when the Crimea will return," he stressed.
The leader of the Narodnyi Front noted that "in certain capitals, discussions among certain politicians continue. The issue of Crimea is separate, and should be considered separately from the issue of restoring the territorial integrity of Ukraine."
"But Crimea is not an isolated issue, Crimea is an existential question of the territorial integrity of Ukraine," Yatsenyuk added.
