SIMFEROPOL, 20 Sep. Crimea will not feel the effects of the food embargo, the action more resembles the script of the famous Comedy animated film, said the head of the Republic Sergey Aksenov.
Vice-Premier of the Crimean government Ruslan Balbec said Sunday that Ukraine has suspended the supply of food to the Crimea, on the border started a termless action on food blockade of the Peninsula. Statement of intent to block the border with the Crimea in the afternoon of September 20 for suspending the supply of products previously made by the deputies of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, the leaders of the unregistered organization “the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatars” Refat Chubarov and Mustafa Dzhemilev. Later on readiness to join the action said the extremist movement “Right sector”. They block the three roads leading into Crimea from Ukraine, in the Kherson region.
“Crimea will not notice (the consequences of the blockade — ed), and the action itself more reminds me of the script of the Comedy of the animated film “the Italian job” — where Mario was going to Rob a Bank, all warned this week. The purpose of the action by blockade of the Crimea, probably exactly the same — to convey to the creditors that at least something is being done to create a destructive position on the border with the Republic of Crimea”, — said Aksenov journalists.
More mindless and stupid action, according to Aksyonov, he had not seen. “In my opinion, the purpose of this action is to take from their idleness the nationalists, who in tents on the border with the Crimea rested, refreshed and vodka in the evening they pour and so on,” he said and announced that he intends to follow the action on TV screens.
According to him, Crimeans were ready for food blockade — all network marketing companies have long contracts with agricultural producers of the Crimea and other regions of Russia. “The situation in Crimea is under control, food stocks created the Kerch ferry runs like clockwork. No questions asked. We’re getting ready. Today in the markets of Kursk potatoes from Tula potato. Long process of import substitution has occurred”, — said Aksenov.
According to him, on the shelves of the Crimean shops is about 5% of Ukrainian goods. Aksenov sure that organized the blockade in the first place will hit the farmers of Kherson, Mykolaiv and Zaporizhia regions of Ukraine and will strengthen the ties of Crimea with the regions of the Russian Federation. “First of all, will adversely effect the citizens of Ukraine. All this will cause the response of Ukrainians, who have historically and traditionally had ties with Crimean market of the food supply,” concluded Aksenov.
