Full naval blockade of Crimea impossible - Crimean Tatars leader Jemilev
National leader of the Crimean Tatars and lawmaker from the Petro Poroshenko Bloc Mustafa Jemilev, who is one of the initiators of the blockade of the annexed Crimea, has said that the naval blockade of the entire Crimea, which was earlier announced by the action coordinator, Lenur Isliamov, is impossible.
"Firstly, the naval blockade of the whole of Crimea is impossible, as one needs to have warships, and perhaps this could be done by NATO only if there is a relevant decision," Jemilev told Radio Liberty's project "Crimea. Realities."
According to him, they were talking about stepping up the control over those products, which, according to his information, were being smuggled to the peninsula through neutral waters.
"Three or four projects of how this could be done have been proposed. To my mind, they do not seem quite feasible, but, nevertheless, there they are," Jemilev added.
As reported, Isliamov talked about the plans to start a naval blockade of Crimea in late 2015 – early 2016. He also said that the initiators of the blockade seek to make the life on the peninsula for those who took part in its annexation as uncomfortable as possible.
