Poroshenko: Deportation of Crimean Tatars – shared pain

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko says the forcible deportation of the Crimean Tatars from Crimea under Joseph Stalin`s rule is a shared pain.
”On May 18, 1944, a criminal eviction of the Crimean Tatars from Crimea began. We share this pain,” Poroshenko wrote on Twitter on Wednesday.
On May 18, Ukraine commemorates victims of the genocide of the Crimean Tatar people. On this day in 1944, the People`s Commissariat for Internal Affairs, known as NKVD, began to expel the indigenous people of Crimea to Central Asia.
