The movement of the Crimean Tatar people “Qirim” deprived the leaders of the “Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people” the right to speak on behalf of Crimean Tatars, including at the international level.
The organization “Qirim” stated that the reason for denying Dzhemilev, Chubarov and Islyamov the right to represent the Crimean Tatars began after their cooperation during the siege of Crimea with extremist organizations (referring to the Right sector; organization banned in Russia), “persecuted in the whole progressive world”.
“From now on all their statements, in any forum, should be classified as the speech of private individuals”, states the resolution.
“We, the Crimean Tatars, are ashamed of Dzhemilev-Chubarov-Islyamov, who stain the honor of our wise, patient, hard-working, creative people”, — the document says.
