Vice-President of the world Congress of Crimean Tatars, and one of the initiators of trade and energy blockade of the Crimea Lenur islyamov has compared the action, previously conducted on the administrative border with annexed Crimea, and now – with the occupied Donbass. According to him, they differ at least by the fact that the Crimean coordinated policy – representatives of the Crimean Tatar people.

“Blockade the blockade of strife. I understand that those guys who came to do it, some of these guys we know, some do not know. Now I do not see concerted action, but I of the story heard 2 months ago. This is a very fine story, it can be done, only bringing it to the end. It’s a system process. Will be different provocations and to the mainland side and the side stand. Trade with the occupied territories is not just a business, it is Superbikes and he is always involved in the blood,” said islyamov.

“We had the headquarters of the blockade. We had a “political cover” in the form of Dzhemilev and Chubarov and it inspires confidence that we will bring everything to the end. It is important that we the indigenous people of Crimea, we have that right. Our nation was ready to endure all decisions in connection with the blockade”, – he added.

Today, the NSDC Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov said that the decision on any closures in zone anti-terrorist operation can only be made Supreme commander.

As previously reported, the second commander of the battalion “Donbass” Anatoly Vinogrodsky noted that the veterans of the ATO announced the beginning of the economic blockade of the so-called “LNR/DNR”. According to him, this time the blockade will be more severe than years before.

Veterans of the ATO said that they will fight in the first place with the smuggling of metal, wood, alcohol and cigarettes. According to them, they do not intend to infringe upon local people who are carrying food.

Recall, December 16, fighters of voluntary battalions brought to fighters on Donbass ultimatum demanding the release of Ukrainian soldiers who are held in captivity. Fighters have to start the exchange of prisoners. Otherwise, they face an economic blockade.
