In Support of the Rights of the Crimean Tatar People

The following statement is signed by some of the former dissidents and political prisoners invited by Mustafa Dzhemiliev to a special gathering timed to coincide with the 68th anniversary of the Deportation of the Crimean Tatar People.  It is in response to the defamatory allegation made by the leader of the Communist Party, Petro Symonenko  on 16 May in the Verkhovna Rada that on one day the entire Crimean Tatar people switched allegiance to Hitler.

In Support of the Rights of the Crimean Tatar People

The repressed peoples of the USSR are waiting their turn at the international tribunal and each has their own grievances.  The Crimean Tatar People’s courage must be recognized in upholding the truth which the communist regime distorted.  The perpetrators of Stalin’s repression had their eye on Crimean land, and the owner of the land was always an enemy for them. They tried to destroy them in criminal style: attack without warning and cover up the traces.

At the beginning of the 1990s the empire collapsed and the world changed. However the criminal psychology of a communist accomplice to the crime did not change. Even as a member of a legislative body in an age where the methods of Nazism and Communism are condemned. On 16 May 2012 Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada was considering the draft Law on defending the rights of the Crimean Tatar People and other national communities deported from Ukrainian territory.

The history is known to all. Stalin’s crimes were condemned by his own students and the entire XXII Congress of the Communist Party. No other opinion from communists of the 1950s was heard.  You’d have thought that present-day fat and unburdened by ideology communists should blink, being complicity in covering up the truth about a people who were victims of plunder and lies. However the leader of Ukraine’s communists is far lower even than Stalin’s communists who approved and carried out the will of their leader simply out of fear. MP Symonenko is ready to slander an entire people and yet again condemn them without proof, shamelessly repeating the lies of the NKVD perpetrators. The communist deputy is against justice for the victims of injustice. He makes shameless allegations, and this is not in the buffet section where his like-minded comrades gather, but from the parliamentary rostrum.  And people in authority – the President and Speaker of Parliament are silent.  All are shocked by the flagrant lies of the political scoundrel.

Is this not the reason that the civilized world has no respect for Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada, as it had no respect for the Verkhovna Rada [then known as the Supreme Soviet – translator) of the Ukrainian SSR?   Since there is nobody to respect if political bankrupts, racketeers and corrupt dealers speak from the parliamentary rostrum.

All of this is possible because communism has still not been condemned for crimes against humanity, together with Nazism.

How long can the Ukrainian people feed their “representatives” who denigrate them in their own eyes and in the eyes of the entire world?
