SIMFEROPOL, March 03, 7:35 /ITAR-TASS/. A Defence Ministry of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea will be set up soon, ARC Prime Minister Sergei Aksyonov told journalists on Monday.
"A new ministry, that of defence, will soon appear within the framework of Crimean Council of Ministers. I am sure that such a ministry will be essential to us.
