Simferopol authorities want to put the clamps on information about HATO

04.08.2008   

In the administrative centre of the Crimea, the authorities have prohibited measures aimed at informing the public about NATO. The City Council voted to declare Simferopol “NATO free”/ Members of the public have already appealed against the decision. 

As well as objecting to “potential dangerous exercises” by NATO, the deputies are against any events – roundtables, lectures, seminars, conferences etc aimed at informing the public about the Alliance.

Oleh Fomushkin, Head of the civic group “Crimean Right(-wing) is convinced that the Council’s decision is against the Ukrainian Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. He therefore asked the Prosecutor to consider the legality of the decision.

He believes that the deputies’ want to prevent people receiving information about NATO because they are frightened of losing some of their power.

The Prosecutor has already looked into this and, according to a representative, is preparing a protest. The Secretary of the Simferopol City Council says however that the council’s majority made up of left-wing pro-Russian forces in the city will reject the protest.
