Just found out that Mustafa Cemilev, leader of the Crimean Tatars, visited London, Cambridge and New York this past August, together with Celal Icten, head of Istanbul's Crimean Tatar community.

In London, they met with Cengiz Dagci, a Crimean Tatar writer living in Great Britain since the end of WWII, and with Akhmed Zakayev. The press service of the Crimean Tatar Meclis reports (in Ukrainian) that, sitting at the London Hilton, Zakayev "spoke optimistically enough about the future of his people."

In Cambridge, Cemilev and Icten met with the former Soviet dissident Vladimir Bukovsky.
