Valeriya Lutkovska, Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights, announced that she does not see particular steps by Russian Federation to implement the interim decision of UN court in Hague regarding the rights of Crimean Tatar people. Lutkovska said this in a commentary to 112 Ukraine TV channel.

"I have not seen any specific steps by Russian Federation to implement interim decision of Hague court. If the process started, situation regarding Crimean Tatars would change, as they want to have their own parliament in the form of Mejlis, they want to have their own organizations, which, according to Ukrainian legislation, could be easily registered and exist," Lutkovska noted.

As it was reported earlier, on April 19, UN International Court of Justice adopted interim decision on Ukraine’s application against Russia. UN Court found Ukraine’s evidence on Russia terrorism financing insufficient, but obliged Russia to stop discrimination of Crimean Tatars. Full text is available here
