We are united by memorable dates, both joyful and sad. We are also united by the memory of the tragedy of deportation. As you know, criminals have no nationality. I believe that collective responsibility is unacceptable, that the entire people cannot be held responsible for the actions of specific people. The deportation was unjust and criminal. In Russia, it has been given an exhaustive political, legal and moral assessment. And the decisions taken by our President are sufficient to restore historical justice. Implementation of the Decree of the Head of State on the rehabilitation of repressed peoples and state support for their revival and development is an important task for the authorities of the Republic— said Sergey Aksyonov.

These days, we pay tribute to the memory of those who died as a result of forced exile and have no moral right to forget about what happened in order to prevent a recurrence of a terrible tragedy in the future. The repressed peoples struggled for many years to restore their rights and return to their native land. And only after the annexation of Crimea to Russia, the truth triumphed: an assessment was made of political decisions, as a result of which Crimeans of different nationalities suffered, and a set of measures was adopted for the political, social and spiritual revival of the rehabilitated peoples. And today they feel like full-fledged citizens of our great country.— said the first vice-speaker of the State Council of the Republic of Crimea Yefim Fix.
