The so-called Prime Minister of Crimea Sergey Aksyonov threatened Ukrainian officers in Crimea, who chose to remain loyal to the oath, and did not wish to obey his orders, criminal liability. He said this at the press conference on Tuesday, March 4, in Simferopol.
“Commanders of military units incite soldiers to disobey my orders as a Supreme Commander. I got this mandate from the Crimean Parliament. I warn all the commanders: if they do not obey the lawful government of Crimea, criminal cases will be initiated against them,” said Aksyonov.
To recall, no military base, garrison or ship fulfilled ultimatum of Russian military to surrender their weapons and swear to the self-proclaimed government of Crimea or leave the service.
