SIMFEROPOL, March 21, /ITAR-TASS/. Reports about an interethnic or civil conflict in Crimea were denied by Crimean First Deputy Prime Minister Rustam Temirgaliyev at his meeting with UN Assistant Secretary-General Ivan Simonovic. Temirgaliyev said so to reporters after the meeting, according to CrimeaInform news agency.
“We have pointed out to the high United Nations representative that the attempts of destructive forces in Ukraine to sow the seeds and create the impression of an interethnic or a civil conflict in Crimea do not stand up to scrutiny,” he said.
Temirgaliyev stressed that no irregularities nor facts of violence had been registered during the referendum in Crimea. “Inconsequential attempts of Ukrainian mass media to show alleged facts of violence are viewed by the Crimean authorities as being absolutely provocative, aimed to destabilize the social and political situation in Crimea,” the first deputy prime minister said.
