SIMFEROPOL, November 10 /TASS/. Sergey Aksyonov, the head of the Republic of Crimea, has described as nonsense the allegations of Ukrainian parliament deputy Refat Chubarov that the Russian security services were preparing homicide attempts on some Crimean officials.

"I am refusing to comment this nonsense," Aksyonov told journalists.

Earlier, Chubarov, a leader of the Crimean Tatar Mejilis, which is unregistered in Russia, wrote on his page in social networks that the Russian security services were nurturing a plan of extermination of prominent Crimean leaders, including First Vice-Premier Mikhail Sheremet and Crimean Parliament Vice-Speaker Remzi Ilyasov.

Criminal proceedings have been initiated against Chubarov on charges of calls for changing Russia’s territorial integrity. At first, a court banned Chubarov from entering Russia for five years but later the republic’s prosecutor Natalya Poklonskaya ordered to lift the ban.

Chubarov and his associates initiated the idea to impose a food blockade on Crimea. The Mejilis activists and their supporters from Ukraine’s Right Sector extremist movement, which is banned in Russia, have been blocking all Ukrainian trucks bound for Crimea since September 20. The Crimean authorities, in turn, have said that the blockade has produced no impact either on the range of goods or the prices.
