Crimean Tatars living in the Crimea are waiting for the peninsula to become Ukrainian again as was stated by the leader of the Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Dzhemilev on February 4, during a Crimean Tatar Evening in Ankara, according to a Crimean News Agency.

"We have been, and still are, counting every single day since the beginning of the occupation. The Crimean Tatars, who live in the Crimea, are waiting for this hell to be over, for the Crimea to be free from the occupier and become Ukrainian again. We will work in this direction until the Crimean peninsula regains its liberty," Dzhemilev declared.

Dzhemilev emphasized that high hopes are laid on the Crimean Tatar diaspora in Turkey. According to him, "only active and productive collaboration will help to liberate the Crimea."
