The Crimean Tatar Mejlis (self-governing body) is a US creation, financed by the US State Department. This is why the US has condemned the decision of Russia’s Supreme Court to uphold the ban on the Mejlis.

No evidence given. The Mejlis was established in 1991 prior to Ukrainian independence. According to the Mejllis charter, the organisation is financed by donations and contributions from individuals, organisations, foundations, and grants.

The cases of Ukraine and Syria are very different. President Assad continues to commit crimes against humanity and local resistence against him is home-grown. President Poroshenko was democratically elected. President Assad, however, was not. bit.ly/2dhfDBe,
