After de-occupation persons started living in Crimea after Feb 20, 2014 are to leave peninsula – Mejlis chairman
Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People, President of the World Crimean Tatar Congress, MP Refat Chubarov, is convinced that Crimea annexed by Russia will be returned to control of Ukraine. He said that persons who started living in the peninsula after its annexation are to leave Crimea.
"This will be the 'purification' of the peninsula… All those who entered Crimea, despite the motives, after February 20, 2014 are to leave it at once…These are at least 200,000 people, including military servicemen, Prosecutor General's Office, FSB [Russia's Federal Security Service] and Russian police," Chubarov said on Channel 5 TV late on Thursday.
He said that persons who betrayed Ukraine are to leave the peninsula too. He is convinced that they would leave Crimea deciding on their own.
He said that this displacement should not be forced.
"I would like to be clear. This is not that we, as Stalin, would throw hundreds of thousands people away," he said.
Chubarov said that Ukrainian authorities and local organizations in Crimea are now to prepare for the introduction of various measures that would make the moment of returning the peninsula very comfort.
