We believe that the extension of the stay of Russian Black Sea Fleet in Crimea — it really hurt and to the interests of Ukraine and to the interests of the Crimean Tatar people. This in an exclusive interview for ZAXID.NET Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Mustafa Cemil (Text in Russian language here)
He said: "Giving consent to the stay of the fleet of the country, which has territorial claims, and when there are significant forces that reach the rejection of the Crimea, the very little unreasonable. Vo-2, it is not in the interests of stability in the area of the peninsula, because staying Black Sea Fleet encourages separatist forces. They openly said: "As long as there is the Black Sea fleet, Ukraine will not do anything to us, we will do what we want. '"
"In addition, if you take into account what happened in 2008 — the Russian-Georgian war, which were distributed Russian passports to citizens of Georgia, the Abkhazians and Ossetians, and then the tanks rushed to defend them, the here, in the Crimea, they even do not need to enter the tanks. There are 23 thousand soldiers, it is quite on the scale of the Crimea, "- said worriedly favorite of Parliament.
"Because we made a dramatic statement about what it is — a betrayal of the public interest in Ukraine, it is necessary to denounce the agreement. Naturally, we are aware that Ukraine's economy is tied to the Russian Federation, there is the problem of gas, but such territorial concessions are hesitant economic prepyadstviya. When Baltic was blackmail that will block gas, electricity, there began to quietly prepare yourself for ovens, wood, stated: "We can do without your gas without your electricity, we want to be independent." And here is a discount for which we went on to unsafe countries concessions. If there is a worst-case scenario, those virtues that we have received or not received in the form of the de minimis discount on the cost of gas will be such a trifle … " — Said Mustafa Cemil.
He added: "I think Kiev elite have also begun to realize that with the Kharkov agreements a little too far. And I hope that at least on this basis they usvoyut value of the Crimean Tatar factor in the terrain Crimea."
