The invaders sent students for an action in support of Putin wearing T-shirts with an inscription not in the Crimean Tatar language but in the Tatar language, the Head of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov wrote on his Facebook page.

“In Crimea, brainless curators from the FSB forced a dozen students of unclear nationalities to demonstrate "support" to Putin allegedly from the Crimean Tatars... They were dressed in T-shirts with the inscription "Putin aldga," which means "Go Putin." In this case, the FSB maggots do not care whether it is the Crimean Tatar language, or the Tatar. For them, for the Russian occupiers, all non-Russians are the same ...,” he wrote.

Chubarov noted that in the Crimean Tatar language the word "go" or "forward" is conveyed by the word "ögge", but "aldga" is spoken in Tatarstan.

“By the way, we do not doubt that the time will come when the powerful chant of "Aldga Putin'ge karshy!" ("Go against Putin!") will shake the whole of Tatarstan," Chubarov said.

Earlier, in the annexed Crimea, the invaders forced students to hold an action wearing T-shirts with the inscription "Putin aldga" in Simferopol. According to the Crimean media controlled by the Kremlin, "Crimean youth held a flashmob in support of the Russian president."

One of the organizers of the action was "Regional national-cultural autonomy of the Crimean Tatars of the Republic of Crimea", headed by the collaborator Eyvaz Umerov.
