The sources, citing Federal Communication Agency (Rossvyaz), confirm that the new operator has already received 20,000 numbers with the code 978, Novosti Kryma reports. 

The Ministry of Communications of the Republic of Crimea refused to comment on the details of the ‘KTK Telecom’ activities. 

Sergey Shuvaynikov, Chairman of the Committee of the Crimea’s State Council said that he heard with half an ear that a new mobile operator is planning to enter the market of Crimea. 

“But the relevant ministry of the Council of Ministers does not report details to us, and keeps the lid on information,” Shuvaynikov complained.
