Jemilev: Crimean Tatars to hold referendum on peninsula's future

28-03-2014 16:51

Crimean Tatars will hold their referendum on the future of Crimea, and the referendum will not be false. Member of the Ukrainian parliament, one of the leaders of the Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Jemilev said in the European Parliament in Brussels on Friday.

"We will hold among the Crimean Tatars our representative referendum... Unlike the Russian one, [it] will not be false. In New York, at the UN Security Council, I intend to address this problem," he said. Jemilev said the decision to hold the referendum on the status of Crimea will be taken at an extraordinary session of the Kurultaj of the Crimean Tatar people, which will take place March 29 in Bakhchisarai. He presumes that Russia may ban the broadcast of the Crimean Tatars referendum. "Then the whole world will see that Russia is not going to enforce the rights of the Crimean Tatars," the politician said. Referring to the situation in the Crimea, Jemilev said that because of fear of terror part of women and children among the Crimean Tatars have been forced to leave the peninsula. Speaking in the European Parliament, he also noted that the response to the occupation of Crimea is insufficient. As reported, after meetings in Belgium, Jemilev leaves for the U.S., where he will speak at the UN Security Council meeting on March 31 and will meet with high-level officials.
