The visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to the occupied Crimea, scheduled for November 4, is a gross violation of international law.

The head of Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov declared it in Facebook, UA writes.

“Putin’s arrival in the Russian-occupied Crimea and holding a meeting from Ukrainian territory in the format of a video conference of the Supreme State Council of the Union State is a deliberate gross violation of international law and another challenge to the Ukrainian state and the international community” – he wrote.

Chubarov noted that the participation of the Belarusian authorities in this event “will be interpreted by the Kremlin as a fact that the Republic of Belarus allegedly recognizes the “Russian status” of Crimea”.

“Once again, it is necessary to state that Putin’s cynical and aggressive attacks in violation of international law, as well as the brutal repression and persecution, abductions and murders carried out by the Russian occupation authorities against the indigenous Crimean Tatar people, are the result of indecision of international organizations, including the UN, the OSCE, the Council of Europe, as well as governments and parliaments of leading countries in the implementation of their previously adopted decisions on the immediate liberation of the occupied territories of Ukraine” – Chubarov wrote.

The head of the Mejlis noted that the terrible lessons of social catastrophes of the 20th century caused by the crimes of the two totalitarian regimes have not become a lesson for many modern politicians.

“But it is never late to teach lessons. Start with the first task – stop meeting with the killer and the bandit. Until he broke into your home and looted your country” – he added.
