The decision to ban the activities of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people will not be reviewed. This was stated by the head of the Committee on Interethnic Relations and Deported Citizens of the so-called Crimean government Zaur Smirnov, RIA Novosti reported.
"The Mejlis is banned because of extremist activity, so the court decision will not be reviewed." There is no reverse move, "he said.
On April 19, the International Court of Justice in the Hague denied Ukraine the imposition of provisional measures regarding the Russian Federation in the part of the claim for financing of terrorism by Russia. The court also denied part of the claim for racial discrimination on the conditions of Ukraine. However, the court partially satisfied the claim, decided to apply temporary measures to the Russian Federation for discrimination against the Crimean Tatar people, obliged to give access to education in Ukrainian language and the resumption of the work of the Mejlis.
On April 26, 2016, the Supreme Court of the annexed Crimea recognized the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people as an extremist organization and banned its activities on the territory of Russia. Later, the Supreme Court of Russia received the appeal against the Mejlis ban. However, it recognized as legitimate the decision to recognize the Mejlis as an "extremist organization" and to ban its activities in the Russian Federation.
