Mustafa Dzhemilev - to Putin: - Moscow for the Crimean Tatars - also a sacred place, Devlet Giray hanged his whip.
The leader of the Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Dzhemilev said that Russian's President Vladimir Putin chose an unfortunate move, saying that Crimea to Russia has sacral meaning.
"The fact that Prince Vladimir was baptized in Crimea. But unfortunately for Russia he was actually the Prince of Kiev. If ever someone in our area was baptized or did something else and for this reason ...
-Then Moscow also for the Crimean Tatars very sacral place because Devlet Giray (Khan Devlet Gera has conquered the Moscow kingdom ) after he conquered Moscow, he hanged his whip at the enters gate of Moscow to scar others "- said Mustafa Dzhemilev.
"But we do not pretend to Moscow as our sacral place. In few words, policy of Russia is very primitive. But this is for domestic (Russian) consumption because abroad everyone laugh about it" - added Mustafa Dzhemilev.
