SIMFEROPOL, June 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Crimea's State Council has urged the Ukrainian authorities to stop bloodshed in south-eastern Ukraine, withdraw all military units from the areas of fighting, and involve international mediators, including those from Russia, in a peaceful settlement of the conflict.
"Kiev should heed the opinion of a tremendous number of citizens wishing peace and quiet on their land and demanding observation of their inalienable rights and civic freedoms," the State Council said in a statement adopted by a majority of its members at the Wednesday session.
Crimean authorities believe that these measures might become a starting point in stabilizing the situation in the south-east of Ukraine.
The State Council said Ukraine was not observing the norms of international law and that it did not have even "a semblance of freedom of speech and democracy, or the freedom to have other point of view which differs from the Maidan principle 'all who are not with us are against us'."
