Pressure on Crimean Tatars by the occupational power in Crimea is increasing, as Refat Chubarov, head of the Mejlis of Crimean Tatars and Ukrainian MP told in an interview for Channel 5.

“The number of those whom we consider political prisoners, meaning the people who are deprived of freedom in either prison or a detention centre, or already received the so-called sentences, or restricted in their movement around Crimea by “sentence” – there are over 60 of them. And I’m not even speaking of those who were fined huge amounts of money. There are a few hundreds of those,” he said.

Chubarov also says that there are over 100 children who were left without their parents as those are imprisoned.

“We are counting them because they need our help,” the head of the Mejilis said.
