On June 11, the Crimean Tatar Mejls (parliament) appealed to the Simferopol City Council to hold mass events dedicated to Crimean Tatar Flag Day in Simferopol on June 26.

The limited area of the park can create conditions for violation of public order, the rights and legitimate interests of other citizens when there is a big crowd, the executive committee of Simferopol City Council stated.
