The UN International Court demands that Russia show how it complies with the court's decision about the restoration of the Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people in the annexed Crimea. Olena Zerkal, Ukraine's Deputy Foreign Minister for European Integration posted this on Facebook on Friday.
'According to the request of the Court, Russia now has to explain, which steps were made to create the proper conditions for activity of Mejlis of Crimean Tatars in Crimea. The court also asked Ukraine to do the same. We'll inform the court on all efforts that we made to implement the court's decision - by the Ukrainian government and the Mejlis member alike', she wrote.
Zerkal pointed out this is necessary so that the court can estimate the actual state of affairs in Crimea.
Previously, Ukraine turned to the UN International Court, asking to explain the decision, due to the fact that Russia did nothing in this area over the last year.
As is known, the UN International Court in the Hague announced the decision, which partially upheld the motion of Ukraine. Kyiv insisted that Russia stop putting pressure and limiting the activity of institutes of Crimean Tatars, specifically the Mejlis.
