The appeal classifies the mass deportation of the Crimean Tatars in 1944 as a genocide in accordance with international law, as the purpose of the deportation was to completely eliminate the Crimean Tatar people.
The events of the 1944 deportation and all the inhuman crimes of the Soviet regime against Crimean Tatar people are mentioned in the document. The authors also draw attention to the current situation of Tatars in occupied Crimea.
The appeal was sent to about 300 governmental agencies in Europe, America, Latin America, and Africa.
The forcible deportation of the Crimean Tatars from Crimea was ordered by Joseph Stalin as a form of collective punishment for 'collaboration' with the Nazi occupation regime during 1942-1943. Ukraine recognized the deportation of Crimean Tatars as genocide on Nov. 12, 2015.
