KIEV, February 26. /ITAR-TASS/. An explosion occurred near the parliament of the autonomous Ukrainian republic of Crimea in the city of Simferopol, an Itar-Tass correspondent reported Wednesday.
A group of protesters is trying to break into the building of the parliament, which is to hold an extraordinary meeting soon to discuss the political situation in Ukraine, whose president has been ousted following violent protests.
About 7,000 people have gathered in front of the building. Two rallies are underway. The participants of one rally are chanting “Crimea is not Russia,” “Ukraine, Ukraine”; the other rally’s participants are shouting: “Russia, Russia.” Sticks and stones are being thrown from the crowd.
“The situation is uneasy,” the Crimean parliament told an Itar-Tass correspondent.
