Putin restores the victims of Stalin

Putin restores the victims of Stalin 

Russian President Vladimir Putin said yesterday that he has signed a decree which restores the Crimean Tatars and other ethnic minorities, who had suffered in the days of the Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin.
Faithful to statements he made last week, the Russian President directly voted for the restoration of Tatars, Greeks and other minorities in Crimea.

"I signed a decree to restore the Crimean Tatar population of the Armenian population, Germans, Greeks, all those who suffered during the persecution of Stalin" Putin said at a meeting of the State Council. Speaking last week about the need for rehabilitation of people, especially those living on the Crimean peninsula, Putin had made reference to the Tatars, the largest minority and old residents, reminding, however, that the recovery will be extended to other people uprooted from there because of the persecution of the Stalinist period.

 

Members of the powerful Muslim Tatar minority, who number 300,000 people and make up about 15% of the population of Crimea, have objected to the annexation by Russia last month, although the region is formed mainly by Russian-speaking people.

Putin had also mentioned Armenians, Germans and Greeks, whose communities continue to exist and flourish in the historic peninsula. Meanwhile, the Russian president agreed to amend the legislation to make it easier for the Russian-speaking in countries of the former Soviet Union to acquire Russian citizenship, as Kremlin announced. This change follows the annexation of the Crimean peninsula from Russia and is in a period that culminates intensity in the Russian-speaking, eastern provinces of Ukraine.
