A letter was send to the head of the “Crimean project”, political scientist Sergey Mikheev. We publish it, because this wat the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will get it faster. Crimean Tatar, future Russian citizen writes from Australia.
“Hello, dear Sergey Mikheev! My name is Julia Izmailova (now LANE). Over 10 years I live in Australia. I was born and raised in Tashkent. Russian, like all of us: the Kuban Cossacks + the Crimean Tatars + the Kazan Tatars + the Bashkirs.
President Putin in his address on occasion of joining of Crimea called Russian people “the most separated nation in the world”. So I am this the most divided “nation”. For me it is very important that Russian world that has cut me out of his composition 25 years ago, admitted me as its’ part and called the Compatriot. I studied the program on free return of compatriots on FMS website. Those who are abroad need to apply for the program in the consular section of the Russian Embassy in the country of stay. I wrote but didn’t get an answer. I suspect that the Program is sabotaged by local officials.
March 18, 2014 I wiped the tears and took decision to move to the Crimea. I want to be among these people who were taken out of the Russian world as I was. But they don’t just broke into the Russia, I believe they were those who annexed Russian Federation!
I am 48 years old. I am well-educated, skilled specialist. In Tashkent I worked at the research Institute of the Academy of Sciences and was engaged in genetic engineering. For 10 years I’ve been working in the laboratory of Histology In Australia. I still can do a lot and want to be useful!
My grandfather was a Crimean Tatar. He was born in Sudak. He had a medal for defence of Sevastopol and many others, passed all Patriotic war.
I listen to your radio programme in the record. You’ve mentioned that you are the head of the “Crimean Project” now. Having put the pause I started write this letter.
Please help me if you can! I want to serve Russia, Russian world, my country, the Fatherland!
Sincerely yours, Julia from Australia, at an early date – Crimean-Russian!
