On April 4, the aggressor-controlled “Crimean media” broadcasted a Sergei Lavrov’s statement a certain “meeting with ambassadors of foreign states on the topic of conflict resolution” in Ukraine, that allegedly until 2014 “the Crimean Tatar language was not recognized by the Kyiv regime, and, by the way, it was not built not a single mosque”.
The fact that the aggressor’s “chief diplomat” expects that the Crimean residents have completely forgotten Ukrainian legislation, including the 1998 Constitution of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea with its three official languages, including Crimean Tatar, is quite predictable.
Well, Lavrov himself probably doesn’t suspect such “little things” as Ukraine’s inclusion of the Crimean Tatar language since 2003 under the protection of the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages; for him these are clearly too complex legal issues.
But regarding mosques, Lavrov’s lies concern quite obvious things: even those that were completed by the Crimean Tatar communities under occupation were laid by them before the start of the occupation. And, in addition, among the mosques of the peninsula built by Crimean Tatars who returned from deportation, many were completed before the occupation, both at the end of the 20th century and at the beginning of the 21st.
For example, this is the Kerim Jami mosque in Oktyabrsky (Buyuk Onlar) 1994, Zubair Jami in Stary Krym, completed in 1994, Zuya Jamisi in Zuya 1999, Tav-Dair mosque in Mazanka 2009, the Burliuk Jamisi mosque in Vilino, completed in 2011, as well as the Takhta-Jami in Andrusovo, the Sary Bash Jamisi in Sary Bash, and many others.
However, against the backdrop of other Lavrov’s lies, this offensive passage, addressed not only to Ukraine, but also to Crimean Muslims, who allegedly “waited for 2014 to build mosques”, will not surprise anyone.
