Simferopol. Mubariz Aslanov - APA. The meeting of Crimean Tatars Assembly is being held in Simferopol.

\APA’s correspondent reports from Crimea that the meeting chaired by chairman of the Assembly Refat Chubarov is attended by members of the assembly, representatives of Tatars living in the regions.

Proposal on Tatars’ representation in the newly-formed government in Crimea is being discussed at the meeting.

Some of the Tatars opposed to the cooperation with the new government.

Members of the Assembly members Abdurrahman Ezgir and Rza Shevchiyev lead the opposing forces. It was noted that the tyranny by Russians with respect to Tatars should not be forgotten.

A group of participants offered to get posts in the new government. They said it means to play a role in the future fate of Crimea.

This position caused confrontation. Tatars from a number of regions left the meeting in protest at it. They said if Tatars cooperate with Russians, Crimea will suffer the same fate as Dagestan, brothers will kill one another in Crimea.

Refat Chubarov said it is not time to be enemies, the fate of Crimean Tatars is being determined, unanimous decision should be passed.

“If it goes on like this, we will fail to pass a decision,” he said.

The meeting is going on.

Tatars are holding a rally outside the hotel, where the meeting is taking place. Some of them demand to be represented in the new government, others oppose to it.

Spokesperson for Crimean Tatars Assembly Leyla Muslumova wanted to offer conditions for only Tatar and Russian journalists to attend the meeting, APA’s correspondent managed to enter the hall despite obstacles.
