Regions of Crimea meeting didn't address separation of Crimea from Ukraine - deputy prime minister of Crimea
The meeting of the Regions of Crimea faction of the Supreme Council of Crimea did not discuss issues relating to the separation of Crimea from Ukraine.
"No big statements were made. The meeting addressed solely internal questions. Members of the faction expressed regrets about the recent events in Kyiv, specifically, the deaths of people from Crimea. Issues relating to separatism and the separation of Crimea from Ukraine were not discussed at all. Not a single deputy addressed that issue. It's just speculation," Rustam Temirgaliyev, a member of the faction and deputy prime minister of the government of Crimea, told reporters on Friday.
Temirgaliyev also said the meeting participants said that the Ukrainian government is now in the process of reaching a compromise with the opposition on early presidential elections, returning to the 2004 constitution reform, and the creation of a coalition government.
The parliamentarian also said the deputies had not made any demands to the president of Ukraine, specifically, regarding military action. The meeting did not address the participation of Crimean deputies in a recent meeting in Kharkiv, either, he said.
