SIMFEROPOL, March 03. /ITAR-TASS/. The situation in Simferopol, the capital city of the Crimea, has been reported quiet; the city seems to have resumed its usual life. On Monday morning most people have gone to work as usual; enterprises, cafes and shops have been working in a usual mode.
Nonetheless, people have been eagerly discussing the latest news. A passenger in a fixed route taxi, who talked to a journalist from Itar-Tass, said that the Crimean people want to live in normal, stable conditions and that none of them wants aggravation of the economic, political or military situation in the Crimea.
"We want to live as we did before, without fear for our families, and be confident in the future. A summer vacation season is due soon, and we do not want it to be lost. People from Russia and other countries used to come to the Crimea on vacation, and we were glad to see them all. No one wants to lose tourists and money because of the political havoc. We want stability and peace," the source said.
All the administrative and governmental buildings in the Crimea are under control of Crimean law enforcement bodies.
A concert was held in the center of Simferopol on Sunday, in which representatives of Russian culture took part.
