KYIV, March 3 /Ukrinform/. The Ukrainian Interior Ministry has said it has evidence that unknown persons, under the guise of the Ukrainian side, are planning the killing of Russian soldiers on the night of March 3 to March 4, Ukrainian Deputy Interior Minister Mykola Velychkovych has said.
“In Crimea, on the night of March 3 to March 4, unknown persons, under the guise of the Ukrainian side, are planning the murder of Russian soldiers. All this is being done in order to legalize the entry of Russian troops on the territory of our country,” the ministry’s media liaisons office quoted him as saying.
The Interior Ministry urged provocateurs to stop.
“We would like these people to come to their senses, because this way you provoke bloodshed, which is not reported in Crimea. It is very important for us that you realize that people’s lives are the most important value. We urge you – come to your senses! We urge you – stop! Keep in mind that the situation is being monitored, the situation is under control. All those who are to blame for this will be punished,” Velychkovych said.
