“The main purpose of the rest of my life, probably, will be the release of my native territory, my country, and my people from the occupation. The reestablishment of the territorial integrity of our country and the construction of a new autonomous republic within Ukraine is what we need. This occupation is a terrible attack against our people," said national leader of the Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Dzhemilev in his latest interview with 112 channel.

"For long decades, we have been fighting against the totalitarian regime for our coming back home. And once again we are threatened with deportation within a regime that is worse even than the Soviet one," he added.

Earlier, Dzhemilev said that the number of victims of the repression of citizens in the Crimea, including the dead and missing has reached 22 people.

As was reported before, 76 families came back to the peninsula from different deportation places, but none of them was allowed to stay in Crimea as "the annual quota" has been exhausted, and all of them were forced to leave the territory. He claimed that previously nearly 2 thousand people annually had been coming back to Crimea.

Recognised Ukrainian territory of Crimea was annexed by the Russian Federation in March 2014.
