Crimean Tatars greet a Ukrainian serviceman as they gather to welcome former chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatars Mustafa Dzhemilev at a checkpoint connecting Kherson region and Crimea, near the city of Armyansk, May 3, 2014. Crimea's Tatar community assembly accused Russia on April 22 of barring its leading political figure from returning to the peninsula following its annexation by Moscow. However, Russian officials declined comment and it was unclear whether Moscow had taken issued the banning order. In an online statement, the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People said Dzhemilev, a member of the Ukrainian parliament and the former chairman of the Mejlis, had been handed a notice banning him from Russia for five years as he crossed back to mainland Ukraine after a weekend in Crimea.
