Crimean Tatar leader and MP of Ukraine Mustafa Dzhemilev will present the report on Russia’s repressions in Crimea at the UN Security Council meeting.

In New York, he will speak about the violation of rights of the Crimean Tatars on the peninsula, in particular, about the attempt of the occupying power to ban the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, the MP said on the air of Radіo Liberty.

March 18, I will deliver a speech at the UN Security Council. We will speak about the measures needed to be taken. The Russian side reasons the ban on the Mejlis by the fact that this organization poses a threat to Russia’s territorial integrity, i.e. considers the occupation illegal. This means that all one hundred countries, which voted at the UN General Assembly for the resolution on illegality of the occupation of Crimea, automatically become criminals,” Dzhemilev said.

He recalled that about 230 local regional mejlis, involving 2,300 people, operated in Crimea.

If they do not publicly say that they renounce the Mejlis and consider it to be an extremist and a terrorist organization, they will be under threat,” the national leader of the Crimean Tatars said.

As reported, prosecutor of the occupation authorities Natalia Poklonskaya filed a lawsuit to ban the Mejlis on February 15, 2016.
