Milliy Fyrqa (Crimean Tatar: Milliy Fırqa, ملی فرقا - National Party, Cyrillic: Милли фирка) was a Muslim political group in Crimea which transferred en masse to the Bolsheviks during the Russian Civil War. It was established in 1917 by Noman Çelebicihan. They were consequently able to seize control of the state to foster a Crimean Tatar identity. The party was banned by Soviet authorities in 1921.
