Dear compatriots and dear guests!

For another year, we have drawn away from the tragic events of 1944 and came to their 62 th anniversary. Traditionally, on this memorable day we review our current status, major challenges facing our nation, and on behalf of tens of thousands gathered at the square people accept a resolution. It happens today.

More than seventeen years have passed since those days, we started to return en masse to their homeland. Over the years, to the extent of its forces and capabilities, we have made every effort to revive their cultural and national life, that is, almost from scratch trying to make his native land again homeland of Crimean Tatar people. And we have achieved some results.But unresolved issues much more of our achievements.

Over a hundred thousand of our compatriots have not been able yet to return home, is not resolved many legal and social issues have already returned home our compatriots. Thousands of his countrymen have no shelter, not restored basic fairness in the land issue, particularly on the Southern coast of Crimea. In general, for all people and to certain of our fellow citizens at all levels of life we are faced with a double chauvinism and lawlessness. The vast majority of our fellow citizens can not protect their rights by law enforcement officials. Moreover, the largest number of illegalities in relation to our compatriots committed precisely by the authorities to protect citizens’ rights, because these bodies are often kishat chauvinistic minded types and greedy corrupted. Rioting police investigators, prosecutors and judicial arbitrariness of last year against a veteran National Movement Kurtseita Abdullaeva and five of our young compatriots who tried to protest the lawlessness in the land issue and to reject fashiststvuyuschim молодчикам-skinhead is a telling example. It is our moral duty – to take all steps to ensure their speedy release.

As before, the number of Crimean Tatars in the structures of power in the autonomous republic in the 3-4 times lower than the proportional number of our compatriots in the Crimea. Not yet restored historical toponymy Crimea, many of our streets still bear the names of tsarism and Bolshevism, which committed heinous crimes against our people, their images remain in our area.

In Crimea and beyond, the Crimean Tatar people and restore their legitimate rights confront significant chauvinistic forces.Recently, as you know, in Theodosius passed a gathering of so-called “Cossacks”, gathered from all over the Crimea, Russia and Belarus. They declared that in order to counter the Crimean Tatars in Crimea, will create some shelves and where they want to install the Orthodox crosses, as well as the Russian symbols. If the authorities do not take any effective steps to curb its provocative actions, such actions, we are forced to make yourself. But I recall that all our actions must be organized, under the decisions of our national government and should not prejudice the interests of the State and Ethnic Relations.

Continuing discriminatory policy of authorities autonomy in employment of our compatriots, particularly in employment in government autonomy. There is still a number of Crimean Tatars in the structures of power is 3-4 times less than in proportion to the number of Crimean Tatars in Crimea.

More than 90% of our children deprived of the opportunity to receive education in their native language, a heightened pace in the process of Russification and assimilation of our people. There is still a language of the Crimean Tatar people, the indigenous people of Crimea, was not even an official language of autonomy. Anyway, have not yet created the conditions that guarantee the preservation of our people as a distinct identity of the nation, but such a guarantee can only be the restoration of our national-territorial autonomy. To achieve this same goal will require the mobilization of all forces of our people.

All these problems are mentioned in the slogans of your hands and will be reflected in the resolution to be adopted at this meeting.

This year were very important for the whole of Ukraine and for our people the election of deputies of all levels, urban and village heads. If in these elections, we were more active and all the fellow countrymen to vote in accordance with the recommendations of our Kurultai, of course, we could make a significant step towards solving our major problems and improving the legal situation of our people. But unfortunately, we were not able to sufficiently take advantage of this opportunity. First, approximately one-third of our people are not accepted for various reasons could not participate in voting.Secondly, of those who took part in the elections, only about 65% used their votes in accordance with the interests of its people.

In these elections, have been taken very serious steps and left a very significant means to divide our people, our fellow citizens to vote, crushed under the various parties and thus weaken our national movement. For this purpose, the means of openly hostile to our people chauvinistic party was set up so-called “Crimean Tatar block. Some of the Crimean Tatar nationality on the list of candidates for deputies of Verkhovna Rada of the ARC of the bloc, of course, knew that they would not be 3 per cent barrier and will not be elected as MPs, and only in order to earn some money, they deliberately went to a split of their people and against its national interests. In addition, several dozens of the Crimean Tatars had emerged as the candidates of other parties, including those openly hostile to our people and our national movement of political parties and associations, as the “Union”, a communist, “vitrenekovtsy etc. None of them, of course, not elected a deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of the ARC, but in general, they, together with the Crimean Tatars unit was able to remove 35 thousand Crimean Tatar votes. Some of our newspapers for the sake of a few earn mostly worked on them and have contributed to the division of our votes.

In the coming days we will publish detailed information on the results of past elections, including a list of the Crimean Tatars, who raised and worked on the other party, contrasted their nominations to candidates who were recommended by regional Kurultay or Majlis at the village heads or mayors, and so thereby attempting to cause damage to our national movement. All this people, of course, must be informed.

According to the results of last March 26 this year, the elections we were able to elect 8 members to the Verkhovna Rada of Crimea, 29 deputies (or 5.5%) in municipal councils in Crimea, 96 deputies from the 675-ty (or 14.2%) of district councils, 845 Deputies from 5063 (or 16.68%) in rural and village councils. In addition, a 309-ty of elected village heads 24 heads (ie 7.76%) were representatives of the Crimean Tatars. Given that, in general, our number of elected deputies of all levels of more than 15% of the total number (5063 pers.) Deputies, one can conclude that we were able to elect even 3% more members than in proportion to its population in the Crimea. But it is obvious that this figure could be at least one and a half times higher if all of our actions during the election period are consistent with the recommendations of our Kurultai.

Of course, in every nation there are people who are very far from the interests of his people, whose personal ambitions far exceed their real value and which are guided only by their petty personal interests. We, too, these people were, are and will be. The problem only in that their strength was not significant, and in any case not reached a critical point. To do this, of course, be carried out in an extensive outreach people. Praise God, from this point of view we are still relatively far from the critical point. Thank God that the vast majority of our people is a sane and well aware of our situation of people. It is thanks to them solving the problems of our people, though at a slow pace, but still moving forward. Thanks to these people, we just do not disgrace, and in these elections, kept at a certain level of national unity. All these people, especially those 65 per cent of our compatriots, who acted during the last elections, in accordance with the recommendations of our Kurultai, as well as editions of radio station “Meidan” our newspaper “Kyrym and Avdet” Crimean Tatar Crimean Editorial public television, many of our civic organizations and veterans of the National Movement expresses its heartfelt appreciation. May God you success in all your affairs.

15 years ago with the aim of further consolidating our people, raising our national movement to a higher level and the higher its democratization, we conducted the election of delegates of our people, Kurultai convened and elected its highest representative body – the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people. Then we set up in all neighborhoods of our compatriots in the Crimea, local and regional Majilis. To what extent will we be able to defend their national rights and to solve our nation facing many challenges will depend on the activity we have created the national government, because the right to make decisions and speak on behalf of the people can only bodies elected by the people.

To ensure that the activities of these bodies has been quite good, of course, they need popular support and assistance. But if, instead of support and assistance we will be limited to searching for the sins and shortcomings of the Majlis and its members, instead of the execution of the Majlis will be in the choir with chauvinistic media sling mud at their Majilis, of course, we are only going to polemics with one another, to cause the expense of solving our problems and to please its opponents.

It is known that the world is, without flaws. Even the prophets asked forgiveness from God for their sins. Of course, in their Majilis we elect the most deserving and most in authority, but if the elected people do not perform or can not fulfill the responsibilities entrusted to them, compatriots at any time and can re-assemble at their place of others. Word of the quality and effectiveness of the Majlis is entirely dependent on our own countrymen.

This year ends with a 5-year term of office of delegates to the 4 th Kurultai and will soon begin a campaign for the election of delegates to the next, 5 th Kurultai Crimean Tatar people. Following the election of delegates to be convened 5 th Kurultay, where the new Parliament will be elected the new chairman of the Majlis, and then re all local and regional Majilis. Will take all measures to ensure that these elections were the most democratic and accountable nation. Thus, how healthy and effective will update our system of national government, will fully depend on the measure of activity of the people. If we have not committed major errors when making any moves, we will not be guided only by their ambitions and personal interests, but first and foremost think about what benefit or harm any of these steps can bring to our people, I am sure that in the coming years we will be able to solve many of our problems and reverse traces committed against our people 62 years ago, the greatest crime.

May God does not force us to deviate from the correct path!


Vsekrymskogo mourning rally on the memory of the victims

Crimean Tatar people of genocide – the deportation of 18 May, 1944, and his decades of enforced retention in exile

In the past two centuries, since the forced annexation of the Crimea the Russian empire and the destruction of statehood, the Crimean Tatars, against the indigenous people of Crimea has the deliberate policy of arbitrariness and lawlessness, which seeks to physical and spiritual destruction of the Crimean Tatar people.

The colonial policy of the Russian Empire, had a devastating effect on the natural development of the Crimea and its indigenous people, was transformed during the Soviet totalitarian regime in the system repressive actions. According to official figures, only as a result of the Soviet regime organized an artificial famine in Ukraine 1921-1923 years killed more than 75 thousand Crimean Tatars. Yet tens of thousands of Crimean Tatars have been victims of forced collectivization, mass arrests and shootings, did not cease until the beginning of the Second World War.

The brutal and tragic events of World War II is not spared and Crimean land. Tens of thousands of Crimean Tatars in Crimea, along with residents of other nationalities fought against the Nazi invaders on the fronts of the war in partisan detachments and clandestine organizations operated in the Crimea. However, the liberation of the Crimea by Soviet forces led to the Crimean Tatar people of the heinous crimes committed against the communist regime.

May 18, 1944 decision of the USSR Crimean Tatar people had been subjected to a total of deportation from the historical homeland and deported to remote areas of Central Asia, Siberia and the Urals. Unprecedented in its nature and severity of a crime against the people was carried out at a time when the bulk of adult males – the Crimean Tatars continued to be in the Soviet Army.

Inhumane conditions of curfew regime, hunger, disease and deprivation in spetsposeleny have caused massive loss of the Crimean Tatars, mostly elderly, women and children. Only in the early years of the expulsion of the Crimean Tatars have lost nearly half its strength.

Forced retention of Crimean Tatars in exile lasted until the end of 1989. Throughout this time, the Crimean Tatars have been subjected to constant political persecution. Any attempt to return to their homeland – in the Crimea prevented the arrests, deportations and repeated imprisonment. Nearly half a century the Crimean Tatars were deprived of their right to ethnic self-identification – ethnonym “Crimean Tatars” was removed from the population, the scientific and legal use of cultural goods.The prohibition of pre-school and school education in their mother tongue, the inability to develop cultural and national traditions outside their historic homeland, dispersed settlement throughout the former Soviet Union and the ban on returning to the Crimea led to disastrous consequences, and contributed to the assimilation of new generations of Crimean Tatars.

At the same time, to a fundamental change in the ethnic and demographic composition of the population of Crimea was the regime of former Soviet Union conducted large-scale settlement of the peninsula migrants in different regions and republics of the USSR. Immediately after deportation commit another crime – the renaming of the total Crimean Tatar Crimea names indicating their relation to language, history, culture and religion of the Crimean Tatars. In the Crimea, were demolished nearly all Muslim graveyards, mosques, destroyed books in Crimean Tatar language. For decades, the tragedy of the Crimean Tatar people, the victims and the extent of repression, the impact of criminal deportation and forcible retention of people in places of exile, not only formally rejected the Communist Party, the leadership of the USSR, and carefully hidden from the public.

The massive return of Crimean Tatars to their homeland, which became possible thanks to the selfless struggle of the people from a totalitarian regime, coincided with the collapse of the Soviet Union and the formation of an independent Ukrainian state. Consistent support for the Crimean Tatars of Ukraine’s independence and its territorial integrity was a critical factor, prevented in the early – mid 1990’s rampant political separatism in Crimea and active Russian politicians to the exclusion Peninsula.

At the same time, the Ukrainian state, some efforts to address the practical issues of settlement of returning to their homeland of Crimean Tatars, for their years of independent development was not a single piece of legislation aimed at restoring the political, economic, social and cultural rights of the Crimean Tatar people, that is cause of conservation in the independent Ukraine de facto inequality and discrimination against the Crimean Tatars.

Moreover, the change of political regime in Ukraine in late 2004 during the presidential election, and claimed in relation to these events, the assurances of the need to maximize the just resolution of the Crimean Tatar problem and have not led to any tangible improvement in the situation of the Crimean Tatar people. Instead of working with the Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people working to find legal mechanisms to resolve the immediate problems associated with the return, resettlement and restoration of the rights of the Crimean Tatar people, the public authorities of Ukraine and their officials are limited to endless debates about the Crimean Tatar problem. This position does not state a cause of discontent of Crimean Tatars.

The most outrageous example of openness by public authorities of ignoring the rights of the Crimean Tatar people of Ukraine are:

  • ignoring the need for the laws of Ukraine, aimed at full restoration of the rights of the Crimean Tatar people, including their inalienable right to national-territorial autonomy within a unified Ukrainian state,
  • maximum delay in a fair deal with the provision of the Crimean Tatars’ land within the administrative-territorial entities of the Southern coast of Crimea, where they lived before their deportation against the backdrop of unprecedented rastaskivaniya more vacant land oligarchs and officials
  • the absolute legal and judicial insecurity of the Crimean Tatars in defending their legitimate rights and interests,
  • obstruction of the return of the historic names of Crimea, indicating their relationship to language, history, culture and religion of the Crimean Tatars,
  • absence from the State of cardinal measures to establish a network of preschools and schools to the education and upbringing in the Crimean Tatar language, providing them with necessary educational and methodological literature.

It is becoming clear that the continued disregard for the public authorities of Ukraine need to adopt a set of politico-legal acts directed to the full restoration of the rights of the Crimean Tatar people, the supreme representative body of the Crimean Tatar people – Kurultay and formed in accordance with the decisions of the national governments of Crimean Tatars should be to maximize implement measures to eliminate the overt discrimination and de facto inequality of Crimean Tatar people.

While immensely sorrow for victims of genocide by the Crimean Tatar people – the deportation of 18 May, 1944, and his decades of enforced retention in exile, members Vsekrymskogo mourning rally, realizing the responsibility of everyone for the future of its people, turning to the President of Ukraine, Verkhovna Rada and the Cabinet, demanding the adoption of as soon as possible a set of measures aimed at restoring the rights of the Crimean Tatar people.

At the same time, members Vsekrymskogo mourning rally, call for the cessation of political persecution of activists of the Crimean Tatar national movement, masquerading under administrative, civil and common case, an immediate review of all rigged court decisions, according to which illegal sentences handed down in relation to the Crimean Tatars, including wrongly convicted of both called a case of Cotton – Club “.

Participants Vsekrymskogo mourning rally, strongly supporting the ruling Kurultai Crimean Tatars on the recognition of an act of genocide the deportation of the Crimean Tatar people 18 May, 1944, decades of enforced retention of Crimean Tatars in exile and of the consequences of these crimes “, adopted on 10 December 2005, apply to the President of Ukraine and the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine called for official recognition and public condemnation of the Ukrainian state criminal deportation of Crimean Tatars May 18, 1944, and his decades of enforced retention in exile, by the Soviet regime, as one of unprecedented in the history of mankind, the facts of genocide and the initiation of Ukraine on behalf of the same legal assessment of the international community.

Striving for the formation of the Ukrainian state in a truly democratic society and to promote the achievement of generally accepted standards of Ukraine in the field of human and peoples’ rights, which is a prerequisite for further integration of Ukraine in the international and European institutions, the Vsekrymskogo mourning rally, called the Council of Europe, European Union and other international organizations to provide maximum assistance in finding and adopting the Ukrainian government decisions aimed at full restoration of the rights of the Crimean Tatar people.

Beginning 65 years ago this week, Stalin deported more than 200,000 Crimean Tatars to Siberia and Central Asia accusing the entire nation of collaboration with the Nazis. 

But even though many of them have been now returned, most believe that the many unresolved problems their community faces mean that their nation’s deportation continues.

“Even their children, who were born in Crimea,” those who managed to survive Stalin’s persecutions say, “remain de facto deported as well since up to now their rights have not been fully restored and neither they nor their parents and grandparents have been formally rehabilitated” (islam.com.ua/articles/actuality/reviews/445/).

And the lack of resolution on that point, Refat Chubarov, the first deputy head of the mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people says, is “the greatest problem which is slowing the resolution of all the other problems” that nation faces, including questions involving land, language, education, culture and religion.

Over the course of three days in May 1944, on orders from Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin, units of the Red Army and forces of the NKVD deported approximately 190,000 Crimean Tatars from their homeland. To their number were added a little later Crimean Tatars who were fighting in the ranks of the Red Army. They were deported on their return from service.

Of those deported, between 25 percent (the government figure) and 46 percent (that of the National Movement of the Crimean Tatar People) died, as a result of the inhuman conditions under which they were forced to live and the brutality of the Soviet officials who dealt with what these officials viewed as “enemies of the people.”

Beginning almost immediately upon their arrival at their place of exile, Crimean Tatars launched their struggle for return. Sometimes this took dramatic and at other times tragic forms. As a result, many activists were thrown into Soviet prisons, where they languished for decades, or even driven to suicide.

Only in Gorbachev’s time were the Crimean Tatars able to begin to return to their native language, but obstacles put up first by the Soviet government and then by the Ukrainian one mean that there are still some 60,000 to 100,000 Crimean Tatars living in the places to which they were deported.

But, according to their leaders, Vladimir Pritula writes on the Islam.com.ua portal this week, “the overwhelming majority of the 270,000 [Crimean Tatars] who have returned or even have been born in Crimea consider that the deportation [begun by Stalin 65 years ago] continues to this day for the entire Crimean Tatar people.” 
Crimean Tatar historian Gulnara Bekirova told Pritula that “such a prolonged deportation has destroyed practically all the nation’s infrastructure—theaters, newspapers, schools, universities, scientific institutions, a large part of the archives, and religious structures were liquidated and destroyed.”

Moreover, she says, besides this and “democratic losses,” what has been equally important is “the moral aspect” of the situation, “the continuing denigration of the entire Crimean Tatar people … and also the “ethno-cultural aspect – the erosion of Crimean Tatar culture and language and the almost complete destruction of Crimean toponymy.”

And despite almost two decades after having returned, the Crimean Tatars have not been able to make up any of these losses. For most of the time, they have not been permitted to declare their nationality in official documents. And what is especially serious for the future, they have not been able to reestablish a network of native language schools.

As a result of the deportation, Pritula notes, “hundreds of Crimean Tatar schools were closed. Now there are only 15 schools (out of 650) on the peninsula offering any instruction in Crimean Tatar, and of those, 13 offer it only in the first three grades. As a result, Crimean Tatar educator Safure Kodzhametova says, younger Crimean Tatars do not know their language.

Equally serious have been the efforts by Ukrainian and ethnic Russian officials there to prevent the Crimean Tatars from rebuilding their Islamic institutions. Mufti Emirali haji Ablayev says that the government has blocked the construction of traditional mosques even though it has allowed non-traditional Muslim groups to operate.

The mufti, who heads the Muslim Spiritual Directorate of Muslims of the Crimea, says that it is his view that the authorities have taken these steps because they want to play up religious divisions within the Crimean Tatars in order to weaken the community relative to the Slavic majority there. 
More familiar to outsiders are the fights between returning Crimean Tatars, on the one hand, and Russians and Ukrainians, on the other, for control of land. Most of the repatriants were former urban residents, but they have been pushed into rural areas because Russians and Ukrainians have taken over their properties in towns and cities.

For all these reasons an, although it is seldom commented upon, “land for the Crimean Tatars is more than simply a piece of ground,” Pristula notes. It is at the core of who and what the nation is and whether it will have the resources necessary to survive. Crimean Tatars see the land of their ancestors not just as personal property but as “part of the culture of their people.”

But as important as land is, there is another more important political question. Up to now, 65 years after the deportation, the Crimean Tatar nation has not been rehabilitated politically. Its members do not fall under “a single Ukrainian law concerning the restoration of the rights of people suffering from the actions of the Soviet regime or its vassals.”

Since the 1990s, the Ukrainian parliament has had various bills before it about the restoration of the rights of those deported on the basis of nationality, but none of these has passed. According to Chubarov, if Kyiv adopted these laws, that would go a long way to integrating the Crimean Tatars into the Ukrainian state.

But more important still, until such laws are passed and until they and other measures restoring the rights of the Crimean Tatar nation are fully implemented, the deportation of1944 will not be an event in histoyr but rather a continuing tragedy, one that will fester for many years to come even if those who now ignore it assume that they can make it disappear.

Ukraine to Investigate Crimean Tatar Deportation

The State Security Service of Ukraine is establishing a special unit to investigate Stalin-era crimes against Crimean Tatars, who are commemorating the 65th anniversary of their mass deportation from Crimea. The investigation will also look into the forced deportation of other ethnic groups from the peninsula during World War II.
The head of the Ukrainian State Security Service, Valentyn Nalyvaichenko, announced the creation of the special investigative unit in the Crimean capital, Simferopol. Nalyvaichenko said Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko ordered the creation of the unit to investigate crimes involving the repression and destruction of Crimean Tatars under the Soviet Union.

Stalin-era deportation kills tens of thousands of Tatars, Soviets deny charges
Deportation of as many as 200,000 Crimean Tatar men, women and children began on May 18, 1944. They were accused of Nazi collaboration, placed in train cattle cars and sent to Central Asia. Tens of thousands perished along the way, and others died of malnutrition or disease soon after arriving. In 1967, the Soviet government said the charges were false. 
The investigation will cover the deportation era and the years that preceded it. The Ukrainian State Security Service has also declassified Soviet documents related to the execution of Crimean Tatar intelligentsia members. Nalyvaichenko says the forced deportation of innocent Armenians, Bulgarians, Germans and others from Crimea will also be investigated.   

Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Dzhemilev told VOA he welcomes the Ukrainian decision, but notes the purpose of the investigation is not to capture or punish anyone.
Dzhemilev says those directly responsible for the deportation are no longer alive. But he says it is important to see the full picture of the crime, and for society to know it was in fact a crime, because that will help in the overall recovery of society.

Leader says Crimean Tatars should have education in their native language
Crimean Tatars were allowed to return to their homeland in the late 1980s and about a quarter-million have done so. There are now about 300,000 Tatars in Crimea, about 12 percent of the peninsula’s population. 
But Mustafa Dzhemilev says no laws have been passed to reinstate the social and legal rights of Crimean Tatars. He also warns the culture and language of his people can disappear within decades if nothing is done to revive education in the native language.
Tens of thousands participated in a rally Monday in Simferopol marking the 65th anniversary of the Crimean Tatar deportation.
