According to him, the Crimean Tatar language perforce will able really to disappear as the Karaite language in due time.

'The fact of the matter is that field of application of the Crimean Tatar language is quite limited and comes to everyday questions and it does not go beyond the scopes. Moreover, many Crimean Tatars refuse that their children study the mother tongue at schools' - political scientist noted.

'We are saying about the Russian language protection and we should raise the question of the Crimean Tatar language protection' - Andrii Nikiforov noted.
