MOSCOW, April 21. /TASS/. Over the past year, the situation in inter-ethnic relations in Crimea has significantly improved, the head of the republic, Sergey Aksyonov, said in an article published by the Izvestia newspaper on Tuesday.
"According to sociologists, almost 90% of Crimeans believe that there are no inter-ethnic problems in Crimea," Aksyonov wrote in the article on occasion of the Day of revival of the rehabilitated Crimean peoples marked on April 21 for the first time.
"Crimean Tatars, like the overwhelming majority of Crimeans, have become successfully integrated in the multi-ethnic Russian society and have become the fully fledged members of the huge family of Russia’s peoples," the article reads.
More than 10 billion rubles ($190 million) will be allocated up to 2020 for "measures on living arrangements for those deported" as part of the federal program of development of Crimea and Sevastopol. Over 1 billion rubles ($18.6 million) will be earmarked already this year, Aksyonov said, naming the development of the Crimean Tatar culture and the Crimean Tatar language as one of the key priorities.
An important step here will be creating the Public Crimean Tatar TV and Radio Company that is set to become a true national television free from ideological and financial diktat. Russia will spend more than 170 million rubles ($3.3 million) to this aim, the article says.
