"The right to self-determination is the inalienable right of any people ... In Crimea, there should be at least the Crimean Tatars' autonomy," Umerov said.
He stressed that demands for autonomy do not mean separation from Ukraine.

"Therefore, it is necessary to adopt a law on the status of the Crimean Tatar people as the indigenous people of Ukraine," the deputy head of the Mejlis said.
In his opinion, if the corresponding amendment to the Constitution is adopted, this will give Ukraine additional arguments for the regain of the occupied peninsula.
