"Mr President, Ukraine has had more than its portion of human suffering. In a new history of that vast country, Serhii Plokhii makes the argument that, between 1932 when Stalin began the famine and 1944 when the last of the Nazi troops left, it was the most dangerous place in the world to be a human being. Even by the standards of that troubled and turbulent country, the Crimean Tatars have suffered particularly. I had meetings with a number of their leaders when I was last in Ukraine, and they told me the same things that are detailed in this report – the human rights abuses, the restrictions on free speech, free assembly, free religion and all the rest of it. How much this House can intervene in a distant land is a separate question, but at least let us be clear whose side we are on, where our sympathy lies. I hope that some of the colleagues in this Chamber who have been making excuses for the Putinite aggression will look at who it is that they are lining up with."@en1
