Crimean Tatars' want autonomy after Russia's seizure of peninsula

Published: 03.29.14, 20:16 / Israel News

BAKHCHISARAY, Crimea - The Crimean Tatars' assembly voted on Saturday in favor of seeking "ethnic and territorial autonomy" for the indigenous minority on the Black Sea peninsula annexed from Kiev by Moscow.

 

The 300,000-strong Muslim minority make up less than 15 percent of Crimea's population of 2 million and has so far been overwhelmingly opposed to Russia's annexation of the peninsula.

 

Crimean Tatars' assembly leader Refat Chubarov told more than 200 delegates: "I ask you to approve ... the start of political and legal procedures aimed at creating ethnic and territorial autonomy of the Crimean Tatars of their historic territory of Crimea." (Reuters)
