    On Tuesday, a Crimean Tatar lawmaker in Ukraine’s parliament stated that the country’s territorial integrity will not be compromised.

    “Our red lines are Donbass and Crimea, which Russia has unjustly occupied,” Rustem Umerov said in an exclusive interview with Anadolu Agency.

    “We will not give up our people or our territory,” he declared, emphasizing that they are preserving their territorial integrity.

    “We will discuss the status of the Tatar population in Crimea as well as other humanitarian issues,” he continued, alluding to Russia’s unlawful annexation of the Ukrainian peninsula in 2014, which some Ukrainians consider as a prelude or first act of the present war.

    “There is nothing to debate about Crimea’s position as a part of Ukraine recognized by the international community.”
