The Soviet regime carried out genocide against the Crimean Tatars in 1944 and now russia is trying to exterminate all Ukrainians, Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal stressed. He made this statement on the occasion of the Day of Remembrance for the Victims of Genocide against the Crimean Tatar People.

“In 1944, the Soviet regime forcibly deported about 200,000 Crimean Tatars. More than 30,000 of them died of starvation, disease and exhaustion. 70 years later, the russian regime again deprived Crimean Tatars of their homes. And eight years later, it started deporting hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians,” Shmyhal pointed out.

According to him, the goal of russians is absolutely clear – to destroy the entire Ukrainian people and deprive them of their identity.

“But no matter how hard the enemy tries, the Crimean Tatar people held out. All Ukrainians will hold out. We will definitely return all our lands and return all our people home,” Shmyhal summarized.
