Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the United Nations informed UN Security Council and General Assembly about the decision of Russian occupation authorities in Crimea to ban Mejlis, the representative office informed on Twitter.
Secretary General of the UN was encouraged to respond and condemn the violation of rights of Crimean Tatars by occupation authorities.
It has been reported earlier, that Head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatars Refat Chubarov believes that suspension of Mejlis is a cynical response of the President of the Russian Federatio Vladimir Putin to international community, that earlier urged to stop prosecution of Crimean Tatar people. According to Chubarov, Poroshenko should summon UN Security Council, executive bodies of the European Union and the Council of Europe in order to prevent the threat to Crimean Tatar people from Russia, which occupied the peninsula.
Earlier, on April 13, Prosecutor of Crime Natalia Poklonska suspended Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people.
Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people, in the periods between sessions of Kurultay, is the only executive organ of Crimean Tatars, elected by Kurultay among its delegates. Kurultay is the highest institute of state authority of the Crimean Tatar people, summoned amid turning points in their history.
