The National Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People is the representative and decision making body of the Crimean Tatar People that has been elected by the National Qurultai of the Crimean Tatars formed based on direct and democratic elections by the Crimean Tatar People.

It is Hitlerism at the very least, the suspending of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People, which has never resorted to any violence and conducting its struggle under a democratic legal order since the day it has been established, as an “extremist” organization by the Russian Federation that has occupied the Crimean peninsula of Ukraine by violating the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, European Convention on Human Rights and all multilateral and bilateral agreements to which it is a party, supported the terrorist groups in the eastern regions of the neighboring Ukraine, invaded the territory of Georgia, committed crimes against humanity by killing tens of thousands of people in Chechnya, trampled on the most basic human rights in the Crimea and all the soils it occupied.

The immediate trial of Russia in international courts for its crimes against humanity committed in all the soils it invaded today and throughout the history will be the most advisable way to avoid by peaceful methods this Hitlerism policy threatening the world again.

In response to this last unlawful and unjust action of the Russian Federation, we call on all the states and nations of the world that respect human rights, democracy and rule of law, and their parliaments representing them to recognize the National Qurultai of the Crimean Tatars and the National Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People elected by the Qurultai as the self-governing body and the only official representative of the Crimean Tatar People.
