SIMFEROPOL, February 04. /ITAR-TASS/. The authorities of Ukraine’s Crimean autonomy have warned of hard-line response to any attempts of infringing upon the region’s autonomy status.
“We must resolutely defend our interests and strictly keep to the position that Crimea is an autonomous republic,” Crimean Prime Minister Anatoly Mogilev said on Tuesday at a meeting of the presidium of the republic’s Supreme Council, which discussed the agenda of the session of the local parliament due to begin on February 19.
Last week, Simferopol, Sevastopol and other Crimean cities saw large-scale rallies in support of stability in the country and against extremism. The rallies were organized by activists of the Party of Regions, the Russian Unity party, the Ukrainian Communist Party, the Crimean-based organizations Union of Paratroopers and Union of Afghan Veterans, and other public organizations and ethnic communities.
