US Rejects Russia’s Court Decision to Ban Tatar Mejlis in Crimea (Tavrida)

The United States rejects Russia's Supreme Court decision to uphold the ban on the Mejlis of Crimean Tatar People as an extremist organization, US Department of States spokesperson Mark Toner said in a statement on Friday.

 Crimea’s top prosecutor, Natalia Poklonskaya, banned the Mejlis, Crimean Tatars’ representative body in the peninsula, as an extremist organization on April 15.

We reject the characterization of the Mejlis as an ‘extremist’ organization and condemn the suspension of this democratic institution," Toner stated.

Following the prosecutor’s move, Crimea's Supreme Court banned the Mejlis on April 26. On Thursday, Russia's Supreme Court upheld the ban.
