KIEV, September 20. /TASS/. Activists and radicals of Ukraine’s Right Sector are putting cement bins on the road connecting Ukraine and Crimea, 112.Ukraine television broadcaster reported on Sunday.
Representatives of the Crimean Tatars and of a Ukrainian extremist organisation - Right Sector - which is banned in Russia, begin an ongoing protest to block food supplies to Crimea. They plan to prevent trucks carrying food from getting the goods to Crimea and back to Ukraine.
"Right now there are about three hundred people at the road near the Chongar settlement, and more people are getting there by own cars and by busses," the television channel said. "Not a single truck is nearby now, as at night drivers got recommendations to move further from the border."
A deputy of Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada (parliament), Refat Chubarov, told reporters earlier about a protest due from Sunday, where the participants will block movement of trucks, delivering goods to Crimea, and at the same time protesters will allow cars and pedestrians cross the border.
"Our protest will be long. Our position is the Verkhovna Rada should discuss bills on settlement of relations between mainland Ukraine and occupied Crimea," he said, adding it is necessary to cancel the law on a free trade zone in Crimea.
