The leader of the Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Dzhemilev believes that the factor that puts off the day of Crimea's liberation from Russian occupation is the dependence of some countries on Russia.

“Some countries are dependent on Russia energetically; some regimes hold ground only with the help of Russia. All these factors put off the day of liberation.”

Dzhemilev is sure that the Crimea will be undoubtedly returned, the only question is in the time when it will happen.

“It depends on many factors. First of all, on the activation of the international community. One way is the use of strict sanctions against the aggressor. Because aggression against a neighboring country and seizing part of its territory is a major threat to the whole world. If the statesmen of all countries in the world realize the threat to which the world is exposed, of course, the day of liberation will be much closer.”

Earlier, QHA reported that in early February, Mustafa Dzhemilev spoke about the called a catalyst that would move the return process from the dead point and bring an end to the occupation of the peninsula.
