SIMFEROPOL, February 25. /ITAR-TASS/. More than a thousand protesters who came to a rally staged outside the building of the Crimean parliament have expressed their anger at the developments in Ukraine and asked the authorities for protection.
The Crimean protesters have called for preventing the armed nationalists from breaking into the territory of Crimea, and demanded defending the Crimean Berkut riot police and law enforcers from reprisals and humiliation.
Speaker of the Crimean parliament Volodymyr Konstantinov assured the protesters that the authorities would do everything possible to uphold political and economic stability, ethnic peace and prevent any manifestation of violence and extremism in Crimea.
Meanwhile, more people have come over to the parliament building to express solidarity with the protesters.
On Tuesday, the Crimean parliament adopted a resolution, expressing concern over pressure, put on a number of deputies and their families, and attempts to intimidate them. The so-called “enemy lists” have been filled in, accusing people put on the lists of crimes against humanity, the statement said.
"These methods are far from democratic, although politicians who are using them call themselves democrats. Following the path of ultimatums and threats will not take Ukraine out of political deadlock, but will merely worsen confrontation in the society, including confrontation between the center and regions” the statement said.
