SIMFEROPOL, July 22. /TASS/. Subversive groups are being trained in Ukraine for sending to Crimea, Russia’s deputy presidential envoy to the Crimean Federal District Vladimir Bobrovsky said on Wednesday.
"We’ve got information that subversive and terrorist groups are being trained in Ukraine from among persons who had done their military service in Crimea," he said at a meeting with representatives of the region’s political parties.
According to Bobrovsky, collaborators of radical Ukrainian organizations are currently staying in Crimea. "Ukraine’s security services have retained there a fairly extensive base of collaborators from among representatives of the radical Ukrainian nationalist organizations - the Right Sector, Trizub, Bely Molot and others," he said.
In general, the current socio-political and operational situation on the peninsula is stable, according to Bobrovsky. However, he said that "provocative activities of supporters of the [Crimean Tatar] Majlis," headed by its former leaders Dzhemilev and Chubarov, currently staying in Ukraine and who are denied entry to Russia, create a significant negative factor.
"They are actively involved by the Ukrainian side in implementing the so-called strategy of de-occupation of the peninsula, including in the context of the alleged protection of the rights of the indigenous population from the actions of Russian authorities," Bobrovsky said.
