Russia behaves as boldly as world community allows it to – Crimean Tatar Mejlis leader

“We have no more questions for Putin. He is as bold in occupied Crimea as the world community lets him be. Another matter is whether leaders of the western countries understand the consequences of the policy of hiding their heads in the sand towards Russia, which is clearly trying to take on the role of a master of the world’s fate,” he said from the rostrum of the Ukrainian Parliament, Interfax-Ukraine reports.

He recalled that the decision of the Russian Justice Ministry on April 18 the Mejlis was included in the list of forbidden extremist organizations.

“By taking this step, Putin’s regime has becoming increasingly like Hitler’s regime,” the MP said.

It should be recalled that the Russian occupation authorities in Crimea continue persecution of journalists and human rights activists in the annexed peninsula.
