SIMFEROPOL, February 11./TASS/. The Crimean authorities have compulsive evidence that the leadership of the Crimean subsidiary of Ukraine’s major fixed line operator Ukrtelecom has been financing a military operation in the south-east of Ukraine, republic’s Prime Minister Sergey Aksyonov told reporters on Wednesday.

The prosecutor’s office is making checks, but there is evidence that the company was paying war taxes and supported a military operation in the south-east of Ukraine, he said.

Suspicions that Ukrtelecom’s leadership could be financing a military operation in Ukraine’s east emerged in December 2014, and the Crimean prosecutor’s office reported opening a criminal case.

On Wednesday, Crimea’s State Council unanimously voted to nationalize the Crimean subsidiary of Ukrtelecom.

The operator, owned by oligarch Rinat Akhmetov, has been servicing about 370,000 fixed line subscribers, as well as about 40% of the market of Internet services in Crimea. At the present time, republic’s Krymtelecom communications provider has taken over the customer service.
