SIMFEROPOL, February 05. /ITAR-TASS/. Prime Minister of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea Anatoly Mogilev warned residents about possible provocations from radical forces, and urged the community to jointly stop any attempts to stir up a conflict or unsettle the situation.
"Our main task is to prevent attempts of certain radicals to further escalate the conflict," Mogilev said. "We should block any provocations from all sides, regardless of nationalities or groups of influence involved. It is necessary to explain to all people that such a conflict is unacceptable in Crimea."
Imitated seizure or blocking of administrative buildings might become a fuse leading to destabilization of the situation, he added.
"Crimea is a very complex region. It is home to many nationalities; we're in the epicenter of interests of the neighboring countries. Many will try to add fuel to the fire which could flare up in Crimea. Our task is to be on guard. If we prevent it, we will remain a stable region," Mogilev underlined.
He expressed confidence that law-enforcement services will cope with the task with the assistance of militia set up by decisions of local councils.
Earlier, Crimean media published correspondence between radical Ukrainian organizations concerning the preparation of storages in Crimea for arming militants. They discussed the purchase of several thousand helmets, bulletproof vests, gas masks, baseball bats and hunting equipment and production of incendiary compound. Chairman of Crimea's Congress of Russian Communities Sergei Shuvainikov told reporters that these documents had been handed over to law-enforcement services.
