Crimean Tatars to vote in Ukraine's elections

World Bulletin / News Desk

Crimean Tatars will be able vote in Ukraine's presidential election set for May 25.

The Crimean Tatar assembly or the Mejlis have gathered Tuesday to discuss where and how the Crimean Tatars will cast their votes.

The Mejlis agreed to apply to the Kiev government to provide a polling station in the Kherson province of southern Ukraine for the Crimean Tatars. Russia annexed Crimea after a political crisis in Ukraine.

The crisis estranged Moscow from a new government in Kiev that replaced pro-Russian president Viktor Yanukovych following months of popular protests.

Ukraine's mostly Russian-speaking east appears as the current flashpoint of the ongoing conflict between Russia and the West over Kiev’s allegiances.
