SIMFEROPOL, March 04. /ITAR-TASS/. More than 5,500 Ukrainian servicemen have sided with Crimea's self-defense, Crimean Prime Minister Sergey Aksyonov said in response to an Itar-Tass question.
Aksyonov said "the process is continuing, with people taking the oath of allegiance to the people of Crimea."
He also said that the incumbent Kiev authorities have not delivered any ultimatums to him (Sergey Aksyonov) as Crimean prime minister.
"They have not delivered any ultimatums to me. They haven't contacted me; we have nobody to cooperate with; they don't need it, being busy sharing powers, portfolios and money," the Crimean prime minister said.
