Deputy Prime Minister of Crimea reported about the Turkish military instructors in Ukraine


In the Kherson region of Ukraine are specially trained Turkish military structure, in which duties include training of mercenaries for combat operations. They are accepted by the representatives of Mejlis of the Crimean Tatars, told “RIA Novosti” Vice-Premier of the Crimean government Ruslan Balbec.

“We have credible evidence that in the Kherson region of Ukraine gathered quite a lot of military instructors from Turkey. Today there are trying to create a training ground for mercenaries to combat in open terrain and urban conditions,” said Balbec.

The official said that the instructors are trying to “create a Majlis capable fighting unit”. Kherson region he called “a magnet for international terrorists”. According to the Vice Premier, in this region there are representatives of the extremist group “Grey wolves”, the radicals, fought on the side of “Islamic state” (banned in Russia), as well as federally wanted militants from the Caucasus.

The Balbec expressed the view that the Turkish forces are acting secretly from the official Kiev. “Given the current Majlis collusion with disgraced Ukrainian oligarchs, including Igor Kolomoisky, it is possible that militants can be brought against the Ukrainian authorities to organize a new Maidan and new state coup”, — he explained.

In 2014, the leader of the Mejlis Refat Chubarov and Mustafa Dzhemilev refused to recognize the past in Crimea referendum, after which the Peninsula became part of Russia and moved to Ukraine.
