The head of Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov believes that Ukraine still does not have the instruments to change the situation with protection of rights in occupied Crimea and Donbas. He stated this at the National Human Rights NONconference, as Interfax-Ukraine agency reports.

“We must admit that we could not influence the situation in annexed by Russia  Crimea and in Donbas and change it, especially regarding persecution, repression, torture of our citizens. And we cannot do it today. We do not have the tools, and we need to talk about it,” Chubarov said.
