Crimean Tatars appealed to the presidents of Turkey, Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan to help prevent the secession of Crimea from Ukraine, reports Espreso.TV, citing Azerbaijani news outlet haqquin.az.

In an interview with haqquin.az on March 6, the leader of the Crimean Tatars and former head of the Mejlis Mustafa Dzhemilev explained:

“Our people were once expelled from their native lands,” he said. “We do not want a repetition of this tragedy. Therefore we appeal for help to Ilham Aliyev (president of Azerbaijan), Abdullah Gül (president of Turkey ) and Nursultan Nazarbayev (president of Kazakhstan). Do not abandon your Crimean brothers and sisters at this difficult time. We ask the entire world to help us. Exile and repression await us in Russia once again,” he said.

Dzhemilev announced that the Crimean Tatars are preparing for mass protests and beseeched the world to support the views of the indigenous population of Crimea, which wishes to continue living as part of a unified Ukraine.

As reported earlier, the new head leader of the Mejilis of the Crimean Tatars Refat Chubarov called for the deployment of an international UN peacekeeping force in Crimea.

  3. Well, I think, firstly it must be said: actually all Tatars are one nation. Only in the anti Tatar and anti Horde ideology they were divided into “different nations”: “Crimean”, “Volga”, “Siberian” and many “other” Tatars – so that to crush them separately.
    All about this is explained in the book “Forgotten Heritage of Tatars” (by Galy Yenikeyev). It is about hidden real history of Tatars and their fraternal Turkic peoples. This e-book you can easily find on Smashwords company website: https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/MIG17

    There are a lot of previously little-known historical facts, as well as 16 maps and illustrations in this book.
