SOCHI, March 1. /TASS/. Three quarters of Crimean Tatars are pleased with their life after Crimea became a part of Russia, according to a survey conducted by Russia’s Federal Agency for Ethnic Affairs.
"The latest survey showed that 75% of Crimean Tatars are pleased with their life on the peninsula. This figure is very high," the agency’s chief Igor Barinov told TASS.
He said that only 27% of Crimean Tatars reported facing problems related to their nationality, down from 38% last year.
Barinov added that the Russian government has made a series of important steps to improve the lives of Crimean Tatars, including giving the state status to the Crimean-Tatar language and holidays, launching the Crimean-Tatar language channel and rebuilding objects of cultural and social importance, such as hoses, hospitals, schools and kindergartens.
"Altogether, it has already had some positive effect on the moods of Crimeans," the official said.
