The relevant decision was approved at a government’s meeting on April 7, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
According to the document, the Ministry of Temporarily Occupied Territories, relevant government bodies, the Mejlis, and the National Academy of Sciences must develop by August 2021 a draft Strategy for the Development of the Crimean Tatar Language for 2022-2032.
Deputy Prime Minister - Minister for Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories Oleksiy Reznikov stressed that the concept is the basis for work for 10 years on the development of the Crimean Tatar language, which is currently in a "critical state".

Reznikov stressed the Crimean Tatar language is universal and allows people to understand all Turkic languages.
