Dzhemilev: About 20,000 Crimean Tatars have already left peninsula

About 200,000 Crimean Tatars have left the peninsula since the annexation of Crimea as the occupying power deliberately creates all sorts of conditions for that.

Leader of the Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Dzhemilev said this during the telethon "Crimea. Three years of resistance."

"About 200,000 Crimean Tatars have already left Crimea. As they respond to our calls: ‘You can not guarantee that my son will not be killed tomorrow.’ We have nothing to answer," Crimea.Realities portal quotes him as saying.

Dzhemilev added that Russia created all sorts of conditions for the Crimean Tatars to leave the peninsula.

In April last year, the Justice Ministry of Russia put the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people on the list of the banned organizations.
