In 1944 the Soviet leader Josef Stalin deported the Tatars en masse, removing one-quarter of a million people from Crimea.

He accused them of collaborating with Nazi Germany. More than 20 years after returning to the region, Muslim Crimeans say they still face discrimination.

From Simferopol in Crimea, Matthew Collin reports.
