Vice Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk took part in the opening of the Qırım içün (“For Crimea”) art exhibition.

The exhibition, which commemorates the 80th anniversary of the victims of the genocide of the Crimean Tatar people, was inaugurated at the Mission of the President of Ukraine in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea.

At the opening, Iryna Vereshchuk honored Mustafa Dzhemilev, Refat Chubarov, and all those involved in organizing the event.

“History views us through the lens of the Crimean Tatars forcibly deported 80 years ago, our grandparents who fought for Ukraine’s independence, and modern soldiers who are defending the country,” the official stated.

The Vice Prime Minister expressed hope that the international community would eventually hold russia accountable for its actions, including the deportation of the Crimean Tatar people and the murder of millions of Ukrainians.

“We must determine what we, as civilized democratic governments and countries, members of the UN, EU, and NATO, and signatories to all possible declarations of international humanitarian law, are willing to do to ensure that russia and no other dictator in the world believe that evil can go unpunished,” emphasized Iryna Vereshchuk.

The official thanked the Crimean Tatars and those who oppose the occupiers. “We will win, but the world must understand the price we pay.”
