Crimea council says autonomous status of region is at risk

Crimea council says autonomous status of region is at risk

In a parliamentary address to Crimean citizens, the Supreme Council of Crimea says that autonomous status of the region is at risk and calls on Crimeans to defend it.

"Ukraine's fate hangs in the balance these days, including the fate of the autonomy. Using technologies of 'colored' revolution, organizers of street protests in Kyiv are fighting for power at any cost," the address reads. 

The Council of Crimea believes that 'destructive processes' will affect, first of all, Crimea and its status of autonomous republic. "We risk to lose everything we have achieved for the years of existence of our republic. They will deprive us of the right to speak, write and study in the native for the majority of Crimeans Russian language," the document says.

The Council calls upon citizens of the region, regardless of national identity, confession and political vies, to demonstrate joint position on the issue.

"Today Crimea faces a choice - to swallow forceful Maidanization or to resist these anti-national and anti-Crimean forces. Kyiv should have no illusions that Crimea will accept the imposed will of some strangers" the parliament of the republic says in the address. 

As a remind, starting from November 21 Kyiv has been holding mass street protests in support of European integration of Ukraine.
