UCCA Attends 2nd World Congress of Crimean Tatars in Ankara, Turkey

Below is the statement delivered by UCCA Executive Board Member, Andrij Dobriansky, at the Congress:

 

Ankara, Turkey (UCCA) – On August 1-2, 2015, the 2nd World Congress of Crimean Tatars gathered in Ankara, Turkey. Sadly, instead of marking a joyous celebration, this historic occasion was overshadowed by the current Russian occupation of the indigenous Tatar homeland - Crimea.

Shortly after masked gunmen stormed the Supreme Council of Crimea in a pre-dawn raid, the world awoke to the reality that the world’s largest country, Russia, which possesses the largest known number of nuclear warheads, had yet again militarily invaded a sovereign territory. Russia not only blatantly violated the UN Charter with its actions in February of 2014, but also the Helsinki Final Act, the 1994 Budapest Memorandum, and at least 2 bilateral agreements between Russia and Ukraine, not least of which was the so-called “Friendship Treaty.”

July 17th Day of Mourning Remembering the Tragedy of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17

Print PDF

July 17, 2015 will mark the one year anniversary of the tragic crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 which resulted in the deaths of all 298 passengers and crew members on board. The Boeing 777-200ER, an international passenger flight en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, was shot down while flying over the occupied Donetsk oblast in Ukraine, by pro-Russian terrorists most likely using a BUK surface-to-air missile. Immediately following the crash, Russian Colonel Igor Girkin, leader of the so-called Donbas separatists, claimed responsibility and boasted on social media about shooting down a Ukrainian AN-26 military plane. However, once it became clear that Flight MH17 was a civilian aircraft, the terrorists denied any involvement and the post was taken down. Evidence, however, points to the fact that Flight MH17 was downed by pro-Russian terrorists.
