MOSCOW, October 16. /TASS/. Head of Crimea Sergey Aksyonov said on Thursday he did not intend to communicate with the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people until this organization is officially registered.

“Mejlis does not exist for me in the legal field. There is no such organization for me personally as a Crimean resident. It is not registered by the Russian Ministry of Justice, it also had no registration when Crimea was within Ukraine. As long as this organization stays outside the legal field I don’t see it and I’m not going to communicate with it,” Aksyonov told a news conference at TASS.

“Nobody has ever evicted Mejlises from anywhere. The only case of a regional Mejlis eviction took place in Bakhchysarai,” Aksyonov said, answering a question about the Crimean Tatar Mejlis’ eviction in Simferopol. “It happened on private premises that belong to a private owner. The case was about liquidation by court ruling of the Krym (Crimea) fund that rents premises there because its founder was a foreign citizen,” Aksyonov said.

Russia earlier banned entry to its territory for five years for the leaders of the Crimean Tatar Mejlis Refat Chubarov and Mustafa Jemilev. Crimean Prosecutor Natalya Poklonskaya told TASS on Wednesday that this move clamped down on the activity of the persons who seek to stir up ethnic conflicts on the peninsula.
