Anniversary of deportation of Crimean Tatars: pain of tragic events does not subside for 80 years

80 years have passed since the deportation of the Crimean Turks, when the whole nation has expelled the whole people by the orders of Joseph Stalin from his native lands, but the pain from those tragic events still does not subside.

The policy of the deportation of the Crimean Tatars began during the reign of the Russian Empress Catherine II, having begun to gain momentum during the Soviet Union. Russia resorted to various methods of survival of the Tatars from historical lands.

The troubles of the Crimean Tatars began in 1774, when the Ottoman state concluded the Kuchuk-Cainargian world with Russia, and thereby lost control of the Crimean Khanate.

In 1783, the Crimean Khanate completely passed under the control of the Russian Empire. Tens of thousands of Crimean Tatars, who experienced the pressure of the Russian administration, began to leave the Crimea massively and move to Anatoly. Many Crimean Tatars who fled from the oppression of the Russian Empire found refuge in the Ottoman state.

During the Second World War, the USSR temporarily lost control of the Crimean peninsula, and after the victory over fascism, the persecution of Crimean Tatars began.

Crimean Tatars were accused of supporting the Nazis and under this far -fetched pretext a decision was made to deport. By decree of the leader of the Soviet Union, Joseph Stalin, Crimean Tatars were deported to various regions of Central Asia.

The deportation process began at 03:00 on May 18, 1944. For 15 minutes, about 259 thousand Crimean Tatars were driven to the square, mainly the elderly, women and children who were put in wagons for the transportation of animals.

half of the Crimean Tatars deported in inhuman conditions did not reach the destination, having died on the way.

After the death of Stalin in 1954, a decree was issued on the transfer of the Crimean Peninsula to the Ukrainian SSR.

After the annexation of Crimea by Russia on April 21, 2014, Crimean Tatars again faced pressure and repression. Russia has introduced a ban on the entry into Crimea of ​​the large number of Crimean Tatar leaders.

In particular, the ban on entry into Crimea is valid against the leader of the Crimean Tatar people of Mustafa Kyrymoglu (Dzhemilev) and other influential leaders of the Crimean Tatars.

The Supreme Court of the Russian Federation recognized the ban on the activities of the Majlis of the Crimean Tatars in Russia legal. After the peninsula join the Russian Federation, many Crimean Tatars were forced to leave their homeland.

Crimean Tatars have been painful in exile for 80 years and to this day continue to fight to return their lands.

Crimean Tatars living in Ukraine and leading the struggle in the diplomatic plane, are in difficulties against the background of the consequences of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict.

part of the Crimean Tatars, concerned about the attacks of the Russian army, was forced to leave their native lands and move to Turkey and other countries.
