"Our first step of solving this problem will be a pitching the tents in those areas where seizure is occurred. If Tatars oppress Slavic people, UNA division and UNA activists will come and provide every possible aid, legal aspect and armed protection including," mentioned Kovalenko, "UNIAN" reported.
In his opinion, "medzlis is not a legitime organ and does not even have any state status; it works out the plans about seizure the land: concrete territories, dates, addresses of buildings for occupation, the identities persons who will be evicted."
According to his words, the seizure of the territories is the obvious and well-known fact in Crimea, a kind of system; the status of forcibly displaced nation became a kind of immunity for Crimean Tatars. They seize someone’s privacy, demonstrating the disrespect of other nations living in Crimea.”
