YALTA, March 21. /TASS/. The Ukrainian authorities have set the goal to create a "hotbed of civil instability" in the Crimean Federal District, Secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolay Patrushev told a meeting in Crimea's Livadia Palace on Monday.
"Extremist, nationalist and paramilitary units are formed in Ukraine’s border areas. Transport, water, food and energy blockade of the Crimean peninsula is carried out," he said. "Kiev builds relations with the Turkish political leadership on the anti-Russian basis. The purpose of all these actions is to create a hotbed of civil instability."
According to Patrushev, under these circumstances it is important to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of countering any manifestations of extremism and xenophobia and ensure the interethnic and inter-religious harmony. "It is necessary to show determination and coherence in countering attempts to falsify history, incite interethnic discord and ethnic separatism, to prevent luring persons who received religious education abroad into illegal activities, including as preachers of radical ideas," he said.
Patrushev noted that measures taken in Crimea were already yielding positive results, including in terms of ensuring the rights of the rehabilitated peoples.
Taking part in the meeting chaired by Patrushev were presidential envoy in the Crimean Federal District Oleg Belaventsev, senior officials of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol and representatives of the federal authorities.
