Petro Poroshenko addressed international community after Russian occupation authorities banned Mejlis of Crimean Tatars. According to the President, the only way to stop this chaos is withdrawal of Russian occupation troops from the peninsula. Poroshenko informed about this on Facebook.

“Separate arrests and political trials against representatives of Crimean Tatars are not enough – they decided to ban Mejlis! The entire nation is devoid of the right to defend their rights. This is another violation of basic rights of people by Russian authorities on the territory of unlawfully annexed Crimea. This is the reestablishment of Stalin repressions against Crimean Tatar people”, - the President wrote.

“I address international community: occupation authorities are an everyday threat to the people living in Crimea. The only way to stop this chaos is complete withdrawal of Russian occupation troops”, - Poroshenko added.
