Crimea to be purged after de-occupation, 200,000 persons have to leave, - Chubarov

People who moved to the peninsula after its annexation by the Russian Federation will have to leave, Chubarov said on air of a Ukrainian TV channel on Thursday evening, Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine.

"It will be a 'purge' of the peninsula... All those who arrived in Crimea after Feb. 20, 2014, will have to leave, regardless of their motives... It's a minimum of 200,000 people, including military, prosecutor's office, FSB, and Russian police. This means 200,000 people have to leave with the last Russian soldier," Chubarov said.

He added that people who betrayed Ukraine also need to go, but they will do it on their own.

"They will be the first to flee, when the soldiers are still there, all those goblins who betrayed Ukraine, the Crimean land, those who were killing the Crimean Tatars. They will not stay as they will not be spared," Chubarov added.

The politician added that the relocation should not be forced.

"It's not about kicking thousands of people out like Stalin did," the head of the Mejlis said.
