"Those cleared by the Supreme Council are welcome. We're happy to see all those who are ready to give a just and objective picture of the current situation in the Crimea," the Kryminform news agency cited Aksyonov as saying.

People who turn everything upside down "are not our partners, they aren't our friends," Aksyonov underlined.
