How Crimea's Tatars are fighting Muscovite occupation and displacement, UNFORTUNATELY the CT and other Ukrainian patriots fight against Muscovite occupation and displacement go under radar in our media BUT I´ll do my best
here we go :
Crimea’s indigenous Tatar population has faced persecution and adversity for generations. Today, as Crimea is held under Muscovite occupation, new hardships have forced Crimean Tatars to make their voices heard. When Kremlin forces illegally seized the Crimean Peninsula from Ukraine in 2014, Moscow began rapidly moving hundreds of thousands of Muscovites to the territory, instituted discriminatory laws that targeted the predominately Muslim Tatars, and displaced approximately one-sixth of the almost 300,000 Tatars in Ukraine. One of the biggest challenges for Crimeans now is the documentation of violence and rights violations against those living under Muscovite occupation—a police state, where affiliation with religious groups and the reporting of abuse leads to numerous Tatars being imprisoned by authorities. Crimean Tatars are fighting to be heard—is anyone listening? How can Kyiv and the international community step in to support this marginalized and targeted ethnic minority? How are Crimeans standing against their occupiers?
