MOSCOW, April 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Crimean Tatars are actively joining the ranks of Russia’s ruling United Russia party.
“There are lots of people who want to join the party,” Vladimir Konstantinov, the speaker of the Crimean State Council (parliament) and secretary of the Crimean branch of the United Russia party, said on Thursday.
“Every political council will have representatives of Crimean Tatars,” Konstantinov said, adding they had already started selecting candidates by professional qualities and the authority they have at public councils.
“The process has got under way. It is positive and we are satisfied with how things are going,” Konstantinov stressed.
Viktor Oganesyan, the secretary of Sevastopol’s regional branch of the United Russia party, noted that many young Crimean Tatars wished to join the United Russia party.
According to Konstantinov, the party organizations in Crimea are being formed on the basis of the local Russian Unity party and representatives of the Crimean Tatar community who are not members of any party but who are not indifferent to what’s going on (in Crimea) and who are politically active.
