MOSCOW, March 06 /ITAR-TASS/. Representatives of the community of Russian Tatars living in Moscow speak out in support for peace and tranquility in Crimea and call on the Crimean Tatars to stay adamant and not to succumb to the appeals from extremist elements.
Dr. Robert Nigmatullin, the director of the Institute of Oceanic Studies reporting to the Russian Academy of Sciences said in an interview with Itar-Tass he hoped the Crimean Tatars would take a quiet and wise stance and wouldn’t enter any confrontations.
“We’d like to see peace and tranquility in Crimea so that there would be no confrontations either with Russia or with Ukraine" - he said.
Dr. Nigmatullin said it was highly disappointing that “the rule of the mob” had taken hold in Kiev. “I do understand, of course, that the legitimacy of the incumbent government in Kiev is highly questionable'.
It is important for the Crimean Tatars to maintain harmony in relations with both Ukraine and Russia. “On no occasion should there be a war or combat operations and yet they shouldn’t allow the extremist forces to unfold, as they will be trying to careen the situation in Crimea,' Dr. Nigmatullin said.
Dr. Emma Volodarskaya, the president of the Russian Academy of Linguistics, believes the most important thing today is to refrain from emotions.
“And if some forces try to stir up the emotions via television, just tell them, well, ladies and gentlemen, you’ve misunderstood Russia’s policy", she said. “We’d like to resolve very serious problems in a country that’s our neighbor, and a respected neighbor.
