The moment of Crimea's return to Ukraine is approaching every day. The People's Deputy of Ukraine, member of the Ukrainian negotiating team Rustem Umerov wrote about this on his Facebook account on May 18 on the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Genocide of the Crimean Tatar People.

He told that in less than two days, the Soviet government evicted 200,000 Crimean Tatars from their homeland Crimea to Uzbekistan, Siberia, and the Urals. The Crimean Tatar people lost everything: relatives, homes, normal life, and the homeland.

“The leadership of the Soviet Union called the deportation of the Crimean Tatar people from their historical homeland a "special operation"; and the Crimean Tatars were "betrayers", who pose a mythical threat to the country. Methods do not change," Umerov stressed.

It took almost half a century to regain the right to live on their own land. In 1989, Crimean Tatars were allowed to return to their homeland, which in 2014 was occupied by the same enemy, but in a different wrapper.

“The Crimean Tatar people have come back home to Crimea more than once in their history. Let's go back this time. The truth is on our side. And the moment of returning Crimea to Ukraine is approaching every day,” the People's Deputy emphasized.
