MIP: Events on Occasion of 75th Anniversary of Crimean Tatar Deportation Held in Ankara
On 21 May 2019, the First Deputy Minister of Information Policy of Ukraine, Emine Dzhaparova, took part in the events dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the Crimean Tatar deportation in Ankara, Turkey.
“The 1944 deportation threatened the physical existence of Crimean Tatars. The 2014 occupation, sadly, reincarnated the repressive practices against the indigenous people of Crimea by introducing hybrid deportation. For in the cognitive war being waged by Russia the world over, it seeks, on the one hand, to ‘save its face’ by imitating a ‘democracy’ and pretentiously condemning the world for double standards and violations of international law within the UN, to take an example, and on the other hand, to occupy territories of sovereign States, unleashing wars and escalating conflicts in all corners of the world map,” Ms Dzhaparova was quoted as saying.
The First Deputy Minister stressed that today’s support of Ukraine by other countries is the support of international law and civilised norms and rules.
“Turkey shows its support of Ukraine by recognising its territorial integrity, voting for relevant international resolutions and acts, assisting in freeing political prisoners, and many other things. This, without a shadow of a doubt, is the kind of support that is important for Ukraine,” she added.
The events were attended by Abdullah Eren, President of the Presidency for Turks Abroad and Related Communities; Serdar Cham, Deputy Minister of Culture and Sport of the Turkish Republic; Mukremin Shakhin, leader of the Crimean Tatar diaspora in Turkey; Refat Chubarov, Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people; and members of the Crimean Tatar diaspora from all over the world.
