Chubarov: we must force Russia to participate in «Geneva +»

Any dialogue on de-occupation of the Crimea will be the result if Russia will participate in it. About it in interview to «Zerkalo Nedeli» said the head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov.

The Turkish government will Finance the construction of houses for the Crimean Tatars in the Kherson region

Chubarov commented on, was discussed at negotiations of presidents of Ukraine and Turkey’s concrete steps towards de-occupation of Crimea, besides the participation of Turkey in the negotiation format «Geneva +».

«It was said that appreciated not only the format but also the direct involvement of Turkey in a process of negotiations and integration efforts for de-occupation of Crimea. If you take the Declaration adopted at the meeting of the Strategic Council, you will see that it takes into account the direction in all spheres of cooperation and questions of interaction in the sphere of defence and security is given special attention. For me it was very important that during these meetings, clearly stated: as a result of the annexation of Crimea had violated all the balances providing stability in the black sea region, and all States in the region are interested in restoring this stability. But this is impossible, until you restore the territorial integrity of Ukraine. And it sounded everywhere,» — said Chubarov.

According to him, multilateral dialogue on Crimea is essential, and you need to create a new negotiation platform.

«Any dialogue on Crimea will be the result if Russia will participate in it. And she doesn’t want. This much has been said on the sidelines of the meetings, and my «unofficial» job was to convey to our partners the idea: do not only come from the fact that with the participation of Russia may result in a short time, and to build it in the absolute. The desire to engage Russia should not move one side of the endless compromises at the expense of own concessions. Need to find a mechanism that will force Russia to sit down at the negotiating table. To force Russia to become a participant in the dialogue on de-occupation of the Crimea», — he said.

He also commented on the fact that Turkey did not join the EU sanctions concerning the Russian Federation.

«I would not like to speak much about the complex relationship between the EU and Turkey… the EU imposed sanctions for the annexation of Crimea, we all certainly expect that they will be joined not only member countries of the European Union, and other States. But to require them to comply with these sanctions, as EU members, perhaps, it is incorrect. It is clear that between Turkey and the EU are a shadow of previous relationships, when Turkey sought to become a member of EU, and she (like Ukraine today, by the way) put forward new and new conditions. So when the question of accession to the EU sanctions, I think, most Turkish politicians have worked these negative impressions of the prevent in the EU,» he concluded.

Recall that the format of the «Geneva +» in January announced by the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko. In his opinion, annexed the Peninsula can be returned only by diplomatic means: «the Optimal format to start such a mechanism I consider the format «Geneva plus»: with the participation of our partners from the EU and the United States, and possibly countries-signatories of the Budapest Memorandum». According to political scientist Oleksandr Paliy, the countries of the «plus» can be France and China.

Noteworthy, Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedstated that the question of the future of the Crimea to Russia does not exist, it is closed forever. However, the Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin convinced that Russia will not have other exit, except how to start with Ukraine negotiations on the return of the Crimea.

The Turkish government plans to Fund the construction of thousands of homes for the Crimean Tatars in the Kherson region, said Chubarov.

«The Turkish government is ready to start financing the construction of thousands of homes for the Crimean Tatars, who were forced to leave the Peninsula», — he said.

According to him, these houses will be built in the Kherson region.

«It will be two or three villages of compact residence of Crimean Tatars. So people are not scattered throughout Ukraine, to ensure the right to education in native language and other cultural needs», — said Chubarov.

He noted that the Turks are ready to start construction tomorrow».

At the same time, the Chairman of the Mejlis noted that for this purpose it is necessary to coordinate the efforts of government bodies of Ukraine, in particular concerning the allocation of land, approval of necessary project documentation, decision making.
