KAZAN, February 26, /ITAR-TASS/. President of Russia’s constituent region of Tatarstan, Rustam Minnihaknov said Wednesday night that the leaders of the republic located in the middle reach of the Volga River, the State Council of Tatarstan, and the World Tatar Congress had issued an appeal to the Crimean Tatars to live in concord with the Russian population of Crimea.
A sharp split has appeared between the ethnic Russians, who make up 60% of the Crimean population, and the Tatars, who constitute 12%, in the wake of a coup that has occurred in Kiev and the arrival far-right nationalistic forces to power there.
The Russian population of Crimea is opposed to the new authorities en masse while the Crimean Tatars massively voice solidarity with the new authorities.
Wednesday, two simultaneous meetings of the diametrically opposed ethnic and political grouping took part in front of the Supreme Soviet of the Crimea in the regional capital Simferopol.
