On the sidelines of the Verkhovna Rada MP Gavrilyuk voiced support for the Crimean blockade. According to him, soon Crimean citizens will get tired of such a life and will be able to determine under which flag they want to live.

- If they need Ukraine, they have to take rise and defend their rights. We just need to drive out of our homes Russian occupation troops, said Mikhail Gavrilyuk.

In addition, the MP said the Ukrainian electricity is to serve for the Ukrainians’ benefit, but not the Crimean occupiers. After all, on the Russia-annexed peninsula everything from cell phones to road lighting is operating at the expense of Ukraine, said Gavrilyuk.

Mikhail Gavrilyuk also said he has not been at the site of the Crimean blockade, but in the near future he plans to go there and shore up the rally and its participants.
