This fall UN International Court of Justice will make a positive decision for Ukraine – President’s representative in Crimea
However, this decision will not have a quick effect. This was stated by Tamila Tasheva, permanent representative of Mission of the President of Ukraine in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, at a briefing at the Media Center Ukraine – Odesa.
“There has already been an interim decision of the International Court of Justice on the teaching of Ukrainian in Crimea and the restoration of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people. We hope that the final decision will be made this fall. And I am sure that the court will take the side of Ukraine,” – Tasheva said.
However, she noted that “this court decision will not protect the Crimean Tatars immediately”.
“No decisions allow us to take action at this moment. But it gives a certain status and protection to possibly already imprisoned persons. Because of the resonance of the case, someone will not be tortured, someone will receive long-awaited medical care,” – Tasheva noted.
April 19th, 2017, the International Court of Justice in the case of Ukraine vs Russian Federation ordered russia to “refrain from imposing or maintaining restrictions on the ability of Crimean Tatars to maintain their own representative institutions, including the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people”. Also, the court ordered to “ensure the availability of education in the Ukrainian language”. But this decision has not been implemented in six years.
