SIMFEROPOL, May 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Crimea’s acting Prime Minister Sergey Aksyonov has signed a law prohibiting mass events until June 6. The document was uploaded to the official Facebook page of the Council of Ministers of Crimea. The Council’s press service confirmed to ITAR-TASS that the document had been signed.
The measure is connected with “continuing developments in many cities of the south-east of Ukraine that resulted in deaths and injuries of civilians,” the document says. It also aims “to prevent possible provocations from extremists that may enter the territory of the Republic of Crimea and jeopardize the tourist season in Crimea,” the document adds.
The republic’s government and cultural institutions are advised to postpone scheduled mass events to a later date.
