The reason why krudish people are under sush situation dates back to the Treaty of Lausanne. Before the WW1, krudish were granted a autonomy by Ottoman Empire. And, at the end of the war, the defeated country,Otoman Empire entered into the Treaty of Sevres, on which Krudish were going to be independent. However,Ottoman Empire ratified the Treaty of Lausanne. Because of it, the promise of independence was dissolved. This causes the present situation.
