MOSCOW, March 02, /ITAR-TASS/. A statement by one of Ukrainian opposition leaders Arseny Yatsenyuk that Russia allegedly wants to upset a vacational season in the Crimea to attract people in the southern Russian Black Sea resort city of Sochi is extremely irresponsible, the Russian Foreign Ministry stated on Saturday.
“One can hardly imagine a more irresponsible statement when rights of peaceful citizens are encroached upon in Ukraine,” deputy director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s information and press department Maria Zakharova noted. “It would be better if forces that are controlling or are seeking to control militants would ensure security of tourists that are going to spend vacations at resorts in western Ukraine,” she said.
“We will remind you of the incident that a bus with tourists en route for vacations in the Carpathian highlands came under automatic fire in north-western Ukraine’s Rovno Region recently that resulted in wounding heavily a Russian citizen,” the Russian diplomat added.
