KIEV, January 26, /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine is on the verge of a civil war, which is being provoked by “fascist thugs trained by notorious specialists,” Vladimir Yatsuba, head of administration of the Ukrainian Black Sea port city of Sevastopol, told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
The situation in Sevastopol, according to the administration head, is now “calm and normal.” He said earlier on Sunday he had attended a rally, where people had fended off “an oligarch from Kiev,” who had tried to organize another Euromaidan [a newly coined term for ongoing protests and civil unrest in Ukraine, which began on the night of 21 November 2013 in Kiev’s Independence Square, or Maidan, with very large public protests demanding closer European integration] in Sevastopol.
Yatsuba said he did not rule out that after such failure “they might send trained thugs.” “If we learn about it beforehand, I will make a televise address to the people,” he said.
