 Sanctions against Russia may be stiffened if Mejlis banned, - Chubarov

The Mejlis will come out with proposal to stiffen sanctions against Russia in case of its ban by the Russian invaders. Every second address of 41 delivered at the UN Council on Human Rights session in Geneva was devoted to discussion of the situation with the Mejlis.

Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov said in an interview with Lіga, Censor.NET reports.

"Our participation in two major international events - the speech of Crimean Tatar people leader Mustafa Dzhemilev delivered at the UN Security Council meeting on behalf of Ukraine, and my address at the UN Council on Human Rights session in Geneva on March 22 - suggests that part of the states that are currently openly urging Russia to stop the repression of the Mejlis may support our proposal to stiffen the sanctions in case of a ban on the Mejlis activities," Chubarov said.
