The Head of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People Refat Chubarov announced from the rostrum of the Verkhovna Rada the gathering of all those who took part in the blockade of the occupied Crimea, reported a QHA correspondent.

September, 24 Saturday, solemn gathering of protesters of the Crimean Civil Blockade will be held on Chongar. I invite all the participants of this action, said Chubarov.

The MP went on to say that Russia’s occupation of Crimea has become one of the most important issues in the discussion of all international organizations due to the Crimean blockade.

Hundreds, then thousands of patriots of Ukraine stood by the initiators of the Crimean Civil Blockade - Crimean Tatar activists. Due to the action, the Ukrainian government finally acceded at that time to at least a part of the international sanctions against Russia. But the main thing - the Crimean Civil Blockade helped return the de-occupation issue back on the agenda of international politics, said Chubarov.

According to the Coordinator of the Crimean Civil Blockade Lenur Islyamov, the activists will march to the positions of the Russian occupation forces in order to demonstrate the strength and resolve of the Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar people to liberate the occupied peninsula.
