SIMFEROPOL, February 25. /ITAR-TASS/. The Supreme Council, or parliament, of Ukraine’s autonomous republic of Crimea will meet for an extraordinary session on February 26 to discuss the socio-political situation in Ukraine and hear the Crimean government’s report.
“We have asked our lawyers and experts in the constitutional law to analyze the latest resolutions of Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada (national parliament) and say whether they conform to the constitutions of the country and Crimea or not,” speaker Volodymyr Konstantinov said, adding that the local Berkut riot police units would guard the building of the Crimean parliament.
“Berkut units will be employed here so that we could fulfil our functions. We are in an extreme situation, and it is time to provide protection for us,” he said.
On Tuesday, the presidium of the parliament came out with a statement to express concern over “the pressure on and intimidation of some lawmakers and their families.” Meanwhile, a rally was held in front of the parliament building. Participants expressed indignation at the developments in Ukraine and urged the authorities to ensure protection of law and order.
