SIMFEROPOL, October 27. /TASS/. Head of the Republic of Crimea Sergey Aksyonov said on Monday he saw no prospects for constructive co-operation with Ukraine’s new parliament.

“This membership instils no optimist in me. The presence of such individuals as [Radical Party leader Oleg] Lyashko in the parliament is nonsense for me. Thus ‘pitchfork’ populist is absolutely useless there,” Aksyonov told TASS. “I so far see no position that would be constructive for Crimea.”

According to Aksyonov, the Ukrainian mass media largely contributed to the formation of the position of Ukrainian citizens at the Sunday parliamentary elections. “Media today are acting with the aim of forming in people’s minds a certain mess and a negative attitude towards Russia,” he said.

Aksyonov said he was certain that the new Ukrainian parliament poses no threat to Russia’s security. “I think we have enough levers to ensure security of Russia and Crimea,” the republic head said.
