The Prosecutor of the Crimea, Natalya Poklonskaya, warned the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, Arsen Avakov, from the intention to create special forces for the return of the Crimea. Poklonskaya also encouraged him to study the criminal code of Russia and the ultimate punishment for organization of illegal armed formation.
“If they are going to create armed battalions and the like, let them read article 208 of the Criminal code of the Russian Federation and look at the sanctions. It is needless to create illegal armed groups to seize foreign territories. It’s a crime”, – quotes RIA Novosti from Poklonskaya.
The Prosecutor of Crimea also advised the Ukrainian elite to focus on internal issues instead of meddling in the politics of other states.
Earlier Arsen Avakov said that Kiev intends to prepare special forces of the national guard for the operation to return Crimea.
