 Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people officially banned in Russia

The so-called “Supreme Court” in Russian-occupied Crimea has banned activities of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people in the territory of the Russian Federation.

Censor.NET reports citing RIA Novosti.

It is noted that the so-called "court" has recognized Mejlis as an extremist organization.

"The court rules to recognize the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people NGO as extremist organization and ban its activity in the territory of the Russian Federation," the decision of the so-called "panel of judges" reads.

It is noted that this decision may be appealed within a month.

Earlier, so-called "prosecutor of Crimea" Natalia Poklonskaya declared that "the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, which is not registered in Russia, carries out anti-Russian activities in favor of the West."

Poklonskaya filed the corresponding lawsuit April 13.
