“A appeal has been drawn up to the regional, city and district
legislatures in southeastern and central Ukraine to form the Federative
State of Malorossiya, orientated to Russia, as well as a call to the
Russian leadership and people, to the EU and to the world community,”
the Sevastopol Coordinating Center (SCC) said in a statement.
The SCC has been set up “to coordinate the work of all branches of
authority in Sevastopol,” the statement says. Also, “youth groups have
been formed in the city under the leadership of retired servicemen” in
order to maintain public peace and prevent provocation, it said.
“In view of real threat of a state coup and seizure of power by force
in Ukraine, the headquarters of the Russian public and political
organizations have met with representatives of youth, sport, Cossack,
political and public organizations of the Russian Hero City of
Sevastopol,” it says.
