SEVASTOPOL, February 20. /ITAR-TASS/. The authorities of the Ukrainian city of Sevastopol in the Crimean autonomous republic have taken additional security measures over the current escalation of tension in Kiev.
“Measures have been taken to enhance security of weapons depots and the inactive nuclear reactor that was used to train seamen in the Soviet era,” a spokesman for the city council told journalists on Thursday after an emergency meeting of the city authorities. The Sevastopol city council issued an appeal to Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich urging him to take tough measures to stabilize the situation in the country.
“Eight policemen from Sevastopol were wounded in clashes with the so-called protesters in Kiev. Two of them received gunshot wounds. It demonstrates that [the protesters] have stepped over the line. When peaceful civilians and policemen are killed by bandits, when violence spills over into streets, when buildings are plundered, it cannot be called peaceful protest actions,” Fedor Rubanov, first deputy head of the city administration, told journalists.
