The Address of Tatarstan State Council (Parliament) to peoples of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea was accepted at todays session.

Tatarstan State Council expresses deep concern about socio-political and economic situation, criticizes violent actions and announces that making decisions to please certain groups and their penetration to the Autonomous Republic of Crimea is inadmissible. We call oppositions for resolution of national conflicts in a peaceful way, using political and diplomatic methods.

Members of Tatarstan Parliament call all Ukrainians, Russian and Tatar people for maintaining inter-ethnic peace, renunciation of radical ways to resolve conflicts, and Crimean authorities for absolute condemnation of power methods used by all parties of the national conflict.

We stand for strict observance of constitutional and legal status of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, and use of peaceful mechanisms of the supremacy of law and secure principles of observance of human rights enshrined in main UN documents.

After the session members of Tatarstan Parliament flew to Crimea to meet with deputies of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and hand over the address.
