SIMFEROPOL, September 22. /TASS/. Drivers of several hundred trucks stranded in Ukraine on the border with Crimea due to the so-called food blockade are on the verge of a revolt, a department of Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB, former KGB) said on Tuesday.
"The persons crossing the state border say that a revolt is about to start among the drivers of the trucks on the adjacent territory as the goods inside them are spoiling," the Frontier Department of Russia’s state security service said.
The situation on the Russian checkpoints remains stable. The persons and cars cross the border in a normal regime. There are no trucks coming to Crimea from Ukraine, he added.
On Sunday, a group of protesters under Ukrainian parliament member Mustafa Dzhemilev, and leader of Crimean Tatars in Ukraine Refat Chubarov launched what they called a food blockade of Crimea to stop the traffic of trucks carrying foods to Crimea through border checkpoints. Later, they were joined by the extremist group Right Sector, which is outlawed in Russia.
Crimea’s head Sergey Aksyonov said earlier Ukraine’s blockade was nothing but a comedy film, since Ukrainian goods accounted for no more than five percent of all products on offer. If their supply from Ukraine ends, it will take two weeks to replace them, he said.
