Ukraine crisis displaces at least 10,000: UN

Crimean Tatars hold a Ukrainian and Tatar flags as they attend a memorial ceremony marking the 70th anniversary of the deportation of Tatars from Crimea, in Simferopol on May 17, 2014At least 10,000 people have been driven from their homes since the start of the Ukraine crisis, with Crimean Tatars the hardest-hit, the UN refugee agency said Tuesday. Crimea’s Muslim Tatars, generally seen as pro-Kiev, have fled the southern peninsula in their thousands since a separatist referendum that led Russia to annex the province. “Displacement in Ukraine started before the March referendum in Crimea and has been rising gradually since,” Adrian Edwards, spokesman for the UN high commissioner for refugees, said as he released the figure. “Most of those displaced are ethnic Tatars, although local authorities have also reported a recent rise in registrations of ethnic Ukrainians, Russians and mixed families,” he told reporters.
