“A ban is not in question. We are dealing with a stance of separate leaders that apart from being destructive has become politically unrealistic. I cannot understand people who make this kind of decisions. The only explanation is that they no longer live in Crimea and are unaware of what’s going on in the peninsula,” Konstantinov said.
He believes that Crimean Tatar politicians like Vice-Speaker Remzi Ilyasov could be held as an example of holding a constructive stance. Ilyasov has been visiting Tatar regions and villages and attending mass rallies across Crimea.
“He can see how Crimean Tatars feel and what they think. They have many problems, which someone has to solve. The Crimean authorities are ready to tackle and solve these problems,” the speaker went on to say.
Crimea has received 800 million rubles ($22.4 million) from the federal authorities to support the deported peoples of Crimea.
“It is the first time that we receive money for this purpose. Now, we have a real chance to get down to work,” the Crimean parliament speaker said.
Meanwhile, the Mejilis chief, Refat Chubarov, has been barred from entering Crimea for five years. Crimea’s Prosecutor Natalia Poklonskaya warned Chubarov early in July that the Crimean authorities might recognize the Mejilis to be an extremist organization.
