The fact that Crimea will be returned to Ukraine is not in doubt, but after de-occupation, hundreds of thousands of people must leave the peninsula, the Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov said on the air of "Channel 5".
“We must prepare for the implementation of various measures and steps that would make the moment, when the Ukrainian order and authorities enters the Crimea, really successful. It will be the "cleansing" of the peninsula. I would like to be understood correctly. We are not going to throw out hundreds of thousands of people, like Stalin did.”
Chubarov said that only certain people will have to leave the Crimea.
“But all those who have come to the Crimea, regardless of motivation, after February 20, 2014 should leave immediately. This is at least 200 thousand people, including the military, the prosecutor's office, the FSB, the Russian police. That is, 200 thousand people should leave with the last Russian soldier.”
According to the Chairman of the Mejlis, some people might leave at their own will.
“Of course, while the soldiers would be still on the ground, all these goblins who betrayed Ukraine, the Crimean land, those who killed the Crimean Tatars will be the first to escape. They will not stay there any longer, because they will not be spared.”
Earlier QHA reported that the Head of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov stated that the consolidation of the special status of the city of Sevastopol in the Constitution of Ukraine was a mistake.
