"Our task is to make the international community tend to tougher sanctions against Russia against the backdrop of increased repression against the Crimean Tatars," he said.
"We call for shutdown of SWIFT banking system in Russia. I also urged the European countries to consider the possibility of imposing at least temporary energy embargo on Russia, in particular, an oil embargo," Chubarov said.
The European Parliament is going to hold a debate and adopt a resolution on violation of the rights of the Crimean Tatars by Russia at its meeting on May 12.
