KIEV, March 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Reports that Crimean Tatars join Ukraine’s National Guard are not in keeping with reality, the press service of the Mejlis (parliament) of the Crimean Tatar people says on Monday.

“We call on all the media to check any reports from any sources. As to reports circulated by the mass media that Crimean Tatars allegedly join actively the ranks of Ukraine’s National Guard in Crimea, the press service of the Mejlis states that these reports are not in keeping with reality,” the statement says.

The Mejlis has not made decisions and has not recommended to Crimean Tatars to join armed units of any kind. “Considering that such items may be a factor of destabilization in Crimea and lead to an outright confrontation, we ask all the mass media to verify any reports from whatever sources,” the press service says.

A report that, allegedly, 2.000 Crimean Tatars joined the ranks of Ukraine’s National Guard appeared earlier on Monday.
