Today, on March 13, an annual meeting of members of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people with the ambassadors of foreign countries and representatives of international organizations takes place in Kyiv.

During the meeting, further steps are being discussed, which are necessary on the part of the Ukrainian state and the international community for de-occupation and reintegration of the Crimea. Representatives of almost 40 diplomatic missions carrying out activities in Ukraine are present at the meeting.

The agenda includes such issues as non-recognition of the Crimea's annexation and the necessary steps for de-occupation of the Ukrainian peninsula. Foreign representatives were provided with information on the work carried out to introduce amendments to the Constitution of Ukraine on the status of the Crimea and the main principles on which the amendments are based and which are proposed for discussion.

The traditional meetings take place since 2011 on the initiative of the leader of the Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Dzhemilev.

Recently the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people published an appeal in connection with the illegal elections of the Russian president on the peninsula.

Earlier, Deputy Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Akhtem Chiygoz said that Crimean Tatars in the annexed Crimea would not take part in the presidential elections in Russia and are preparing a number of actions.
