On 24 April Ambassador of Ukraine to Latvia Olexandr Mischenko and Chairman of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov opened exhibition ADULT CRIMEAN CHILDHOOD at the Museum of Occupation of Latvia.
Made by Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty journalist Anton Naumlyuk the exhibition is about children left without the parental care as the result of the Russian political terror in the occupied peninsula, including illegal arrests, abductions, and killings.
According to Ambassador Olexandr Mischenko, persecution by the Russian occupying power of Crimean Tatars for their opposition to occupation іs not only the violation of international law but by these actions Russia also deprives children of their childhood, creating the atmosphere of fear and terror.
The flashmob was attended by Ukrainians and Latvians, members of the Saeima, Ambassador of Ukraine Olexandr Mischenko and diplomats of the Embassy of Ukraine in Latvia.
In October 2018 activists the campaign “United by the Flag - #LIBERATECRIMEA” was launched, within which the national flag of the Crimean Tatar people is travelling around the world and on 26 June, on the day of the Crimean Tatar flag, will return back to Kyiv. The flag arrived to Riga from Estonia and will travel further to Vilnius.
