SIMFEROPOL, January 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Residents of Crimea are disdained by the continuing riots in Kiev and they demand protection of their right to a peaceful and stable life, Vladimir Konstantinov, the speaker of the Crimean regional legislature said Thursday.
“The degree of disdain is growing in Crimea, as people simply can’t understand why they continue going to work every day and doing useful things and why they are trying to maintain stability while someone other groupings are seeking to deprive them of it?” the Crimean information agency quoted him as saying.
The republic’s legislature was receiving these questions en masse by a special hotline and the during the MPs’ immediate contacts with the residents, Konstantinov said.He gave the assurances that the Crimean leadership has enough political resolve for defending people’s interests and preventing destabilization in the region.
Wednesday, January 22, the Crimean legislature had an emergency session, at the end of which they passed a statement accusing the leaders of the pro-Western, rightwing nationalistic opposition in Kiev of the willingness to trigger bloodshed in Ukraine.
The legislators said there was no ceding Ukraine “to extremists and neo-Nazis who seek to grab state power through a split of the country and the shedding of the population’s blood.”
“The Crimeans will never take part in illegitimate elections, recognize their results or live in a Ukraine ruled by ultra-rightwing militant nationalists,” the document said.
