SIMFEROPOL, March 13. /ITAR-TASS/. United Nations Assistant Secretary General for Human Rights Ivan Simonovic was not allowed into Crimea for fear of provocations, Crimean Supreme Council Speaker Volodymyr Konstantinov told reported on Thursday.
"There are many observers here, and frankly speaking, we already get confused [to identify them]," he said. The problem of security is not in that we cannot ensure it, but in the fact that there is no confidence in Western structures, and people expect provocations from them," he said.
"We have decided to bar such visits to prevent such incidents," Konstantinov added.
The UN envoy visited Kiev, Kharkiv and Lviv where he met with local authorities.
