A letter by Akhtem Chyyhoz, Deputy Chairman of the Majlis, illegally held in the Simferopol prison, was published by his lawyer Nikolai Polozov.

In his address prior to elections to the State Duma of the Russian Federation, Chyyhoz noted that the Crimean Tatars got into occupation against their will on their historical homeland. Thus they are not intending to connect their future with Russia.

As it was reported earlier, Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis Ilmi Umerov called Crimean Tatars to boycott elections on the annexed peninsula.
