Today is the 74th anniversary of the deportation of the Crimean Tatar people, which claimed the lives of almost half the indigenous people of the Crimea.
“Unfortunately, this commemoration is especially topical today, when the searches conducted by the great-grandchildren of those who deported the Crimean Tatars to Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan are carried out every day in the Crimea,” says MP Roman Semenukha of the Samopomich faction. “And so the unpunished evil is coming back today. We are witnessing suppression, persecution, intimidation and other shameful things. I am convinced that Ukraine must admit its mistake and treat the Crimean Tatar people in a different way. Had Ukraine pursued a different policy in the early 1990s, more of the Crimean Tatars could have come back from the places to which they had been sent by the Soviet regime. Ukrainians and Crimean Tatars are similar in the way that neither of us can have their statehood in any other corner of the world. We have one common home.”
