KIEV, March 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Acting Ukrainian president Oleksandr Turchynov has called for creating a demilitarized zone in Crimea.
“Military forces of both parties should leave Crimea. All problems should be solved by peaceful means,” Turchynov said at a meeting with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Friday.
“Crimea’s demilitarization will help restore Ukraine’s sovereignty in compliance with the Constitution,” the interim president said.
“We’ve also agreed to create an international commission under the UN auspices,” he said.
“Ukraine is doing its best to settle the conflict by peaceful means. We’re grateful to the UN for contribution,” Turchynov said, adding that Ukraine “upholds the deployment of a UN monitoring mission in Crimea”.
