Crimean Tatars will not resort to forceful resistance against the occupying authorities of Crimea. As UNIAN reports, about this at the briefing said the Chairman of the Majlis of the Crimean Tatar people, MP of Ukraine Refat çubar.
«The Russian Federation two years ago, flouted international law, and today it is the country that brought the war in Ukraine and could cause the third world war, and this is acknowledged by the leaders of the world. But if they think that Russia will stop the radical Crimean Tatars in the occupied Crimea, this world is not worthy of a better fate,» said Chubarov.
He is convinced that only stiffer international pressure will stop Russia: «it is the international instruments, organizations and leaders, not the people, with only 300 thousand people, should immediately stop Russia. Do not hope that someone in the Crimea will take the stones and go up against armed invaders».
